This lithograph is refered to in a 1894 letter from Whister to T.R. Way:
'The proofs were sadly crushed! Why did you roll them?' Mr. Gleeson White can have 'The Long Gallery, Louvre'. Whistler agreed with Mr. Thomson to let the Vertues have 'Les Bebes du Luxembourg'. Asks Way to send 25 proofs of each of six lithographs but to leave 'Le faucheur' which Whistler does not like. Whistler will consider Way's remarks about the zinc. (signed with butterfly).
Held by the University to Glasgow.
Versions are also held at the Victoria and Albert Museum (as Nursemaids; Les Bonnes du Luxembourg), Brooklyn Museum (as Nursemaids of Luxembourg), the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Carnegie Museum of Art.
