JAMES MCNEILL WHISTLER. Richard Dorment et al. Tate Gallery, London, 1994. Organized in association with Reunion des musees nationaux, Paris, Musee d'Orsay, Paris, and National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. Published in the U.S.A. by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 332 pp. with 345 ills. (218 col.). 31 x 25 cm. LC 94-40838 ISBN 0810939762 In English.
Accompanying the most comprehensive exhibition of Whistler's work to be mounted in nearly a century, this scholarly catalogue thoroughly documents 205 paintings, watercolors, pastels and prints produced by the celebrated American artist (1834-1903) over the course of his career in London and Paris, the selection including many of his influential portraits and Nocturnes as well as examples of his etchings, decorative designs and late landscapes and coastal views. Detailed individual analyses of the featured works and numerous brief texts discussing events and themes central to Whistler's personal and artistic development are augmented by five essays that trace his flamboyant career and explore the critical reception of his often controversial works of the 1870s and 80s, examining their influence on the art worlds of France, Britain and America during the period.
