Question
Is there an etching of whistler's Mother?  "MOTHER' IN RIGHT CORNER; wHISTLER  SIGNATURE IN LEFT.  PLATE MARKS  AROUND THE WORK.  

Answer
Ruth, James Abbot McNeill Whistler did a lot of Mother & Child, Mother & Daughter, and other Mother pieces. I do not know of a piece strictly titled "Mother", but it is definitely possible. You can find some more examples of Whistler etchings at http://www.masterworksfineart.com/inventory/whistler/ and their values. Alex Adelman Masterworks Fine Art knows Whistler prints, and he may be able to help you determine the exact piece you own.
