James Abbott McNeill Whistler: Victoria Club


Victoria Club, 1879
James Abbott McNeill Whistler
American, 1834-1903

One of the most outspoken proponents of “art for art’s sake,” Whistler is recognized as one of the most original and influential painters of the 19th century. His etchings now are considered some of the finest since Rembrandt. Whistler’s work is in most major museums throughout the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, the Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Museum of Fine Art Boston.

Private collection of Michele Bechtell and Edward Fritzi
