Whistler wrote to Lucas (Luke) Alexander Ionides (1837-1924) on 26 October 1865, 'My pictures I think you will like very much - The Sea is splendid at this moment but I am anxious to get back.' 2 In the following year, Whistler deposited several 'Sea views' with Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) during his absence in Valparaiso, leaving Joanna Hiffernan (b. ca 1843-d.1886) with authority to sell or pawn them as needed. 3
