An in-depth study of the only surviving example of the influential interior designs produced by celebrated American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903), this volume presents an extensive eight-part text tracing the history and critical reception of the sumptuous, japonisme-inspired Peacock Room from its creation in a London townhouse in 1876-77 to its installation in the Freer Gallery of Art in the early 1920s and examining the interior in the context of Whistler's oeuvre and the British Aesthetic movement. Features excellent illustrations of the recently restored Peacock Room, historical photographs of the work and of other important Victorian interiors and reproductions of scores of paintings, drawings and prints by Whistler and such contemporaries of the artist as Rossetti and Beardsley.
