3. Hearns exhibition
Little is known about this exhibition other than that an exhibition of Venice drawings by Thomas Hearne took place at the Fine Art Society in May 1894. The etchings that JW sent are thus likely to be from Mr Whistler's Etchings of Venice, 1880 (the first 'Venice Set') (K. 183-189, 191-195). (excat 5).
