Millbank, from 'Sixteen Etchings,' or the 'Thames Set'
James McNeill Whistler
An expansive riverscape moves across the middle of the image, from left to right. On the near bank are pilings and a retaining wall while on the opposite bank are factories and other buildings. In the foreground, two men stand on the embankment near the waterline; another man stands at the back of a boat or barge in the lower left corner.
