The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is a fairly good reproduction (scanned and printed) of a (to me) very boring book. The content is a collection of criticisms of whistler's art, and his replies, and the critics replies, and so on, sometimes going through many rounds; all collected and commented on by the artist himself. One needs to be a collector of whistler memorabilia to find any interest in this, otherwise it is just several people alternatingly saying unfriendly things about each other, without being funny or interesting. That this stuff could get printed gives perhaps some insight in the time (artistic celebrity-obsession?), but it is neither funny or entertaining, nor particular informative.
