Only one title is known:
A three-quarter length study of a man in three-quarter view to right, painted in vertical format. He wears a dark overcoat and pale trousers. He has short brown hair and a moustache. The study is unfinished.
Roland, Browse & Delbanco considered this to be a portrait of the painter William Stott (1857-1900), which would indicate a date before Whistler's quarrel with him in 1888. This identification has been controverted by Goodison. 3
