Whistler's Thames

I wasn't aware that American artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler had made The Thames Set etchings whilst in London. Here is his etching of Limehouse (1859). CLICK for a larger graphic. This is one of the exhibits in Dürer, Rembrandt & Whistler: Prints from the Collection of Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly, which opened today in the Bruce Museum of Arts and Science in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA (CLICK). If you live in the area, this is a must-see exhibition. It includes prints by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Tiepolo and Goya. Do we have a copy of The Thames Set in a museum in London? I wonder.
