Overview

8 5/8 x 12 1/8 in. (220 x 310mm) 80 pages. Hardcover. Over 70 illustrations. James McNeill Whistler was a rebel, dandy, wit, eccentric, and above all, an extraordinary artist. He departed, almost entirely, from the established realist style of his day and developed his own unique approach, emphasizing color and light and embracing the principles of art for art's sake. This stunning visual portrait traces the artist's career and art from his early childhood in America to adult life in England and France. The full range of his work from early etchings to late minimalist paintings is represented by 75 full-color reproductions of his most important pieces.
