This important print is a view of St. James's Street in London by the revolutionary artist James McNiell Whistler. Painter, printmaker, designer, scholar, and aesthete, Whistler took the nineteenth century art world by storm. From his atmospheric paintings to his innovative etchings, Whistler's art forever changed the course of Western art, establishing a new language of art, which was both visual and literary.

This remarkable print depicts a view from a house in Piccadilly, looking down St. James's Street towards St. James's Palace. It is typical of Whistler's London views, which were often peopled with groups of figures.

This is a lithographic produced in reverse for the London magazine "Vanity Fair" on 2, July 1878.
