Nocturne may date from the mid-late 1870s, as do most of Whistler's nocturnes, but the
sole reference to it is when it was exhibited at the International Exhibition, Edinburgh, 1886 (cat. no. 1399). 1
It is possible that it was either Nocturne: Black and Gold - The Fire Wheel [YMSM 169] or Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Falling Rocket [YMSM 170].
1: YMSM 1980 [more] (cat. no. 171).
