Rose et argent: La Jolie Mutine dates from the early 1890s, possibly between 1892 and 1893. 1

The canvas bears the stamp of Emile Blanchet (1852-1931), artists' supplier, whom Whistler appears to have patronised at some time between 1892 and 1895.

The fact that a pen drawing of the composition – Study of "Rose et argent: La Jolie Mutine" – was made by Beatrice Philip (Mrs E. W. Godwin, Mrs J. McN. Whistler) (1857-1896) and confirms that the sitter was posing, probably in Paris, in which case it could date from between 1892 and 1893.

Notes:

1: Dated 'about 1890' in YMSM 1980 [more] (cat. no. 389).
