Whistler commented in 1900 on a suggestion that his painting should be reproduced in a forthcoming book: 'The small painting of mine, sometimes called "The Balcony", would, I fancy, come rather irrelevantly into your proposed collection of Architecture, sculpture and Old Masters - and certainly its relation to "Education" would be difficult to establish! - while its effect upon the Youth of America I propose in no way to be responsable [sic] for!' 1
