Whistler in Paris, London, and Venice
This exhibition-the first at the Gallery dedicated to James Abbott McNeill Whistler-examines one of the most celebrated artists of the 19th century through the lens of three of his earliest and most innovative sets of etchings, the so-called French, Thames, and Venice Sets. Each set is representative of an important period in Whistler’s life: as a student in Paris, absorbing the lessons of his Realist contemporaries and the Old Masters; as an emerging artist in London, forging a name for himself as an etcher; and as a well-known artist and teacher in Venice.
