Fine impression. Very rare.
There is a shadow formed by a number of short horizontal lines which run from the right of the ankle of the foot on the floor, almost to the edge of the trousers leg; the curtain has been reworked, there are new lines on the hair and also just above "Whistler, 1869" (A. W. Scholle).
