James McNeill Whistler
If the man who paints only the tree, or flower, or other surface he sees before him were an artist, the king of artists would be the photographer. It is for the artist to do something beyond this: in portrait painting to put on canvas something more than the face the model wears for that one day; to paint the man, in short, as well as his features.

Artists' Community Chats ArtBoards Lessons ... World of Watercolor James McNeill Whistler was an influential artist of the nineteenth century and a famous and colorful personality of his times. He painted many unique and memorable works besides the familiar portrait of his mother. Whistler developed his own painting techniques over the years and late in his life taught others his methods and philosophy. Although an American by birth, Whistler lived much of his life in England and it was there that he had his studio. "I do not teach Art, with that I cannot interfere: but I teach the scientific application of paint and brushes." he told his students. "As music is the poetry of sound, so is painting the poetry of sight and the subject-matter has nothing to do with harmony of sound or of color." - Whistler Walter Greaves and his brother Henry, became Whistler's studio assistants and pupils. The two former boatmen worked for the artist to prepare canvases, purchase materials and prepare the colors. Walter Greaves recalled watching Whistler reshape his brushes, heating the ferule over a candle to melt the glue and then pushing the hairs into the form he wanted. Extra-long handled brushes were used for large canvases and the artist would use different brushes for different colors.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler
James Abbott McNeill Whistler was an American painter and etcher, who assimilated Japanese art styles, made technical innovations, and championed modern art. Many regard him as preeminent among etchers. Whistler was born on July 10, 1834, in Lowell, Massachusetts. He entered the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1851, did not do well in his studies, and left in 1854 to take a job as a draftsman with the U.S. Coast Survey. One year later he left the United States and went to Paris, where he became a pupil of the Swiss classicist painter Charles Gabriel Gleyre. Formal instruction influenced him less, however, than his acquaintance with the French realist painter Gustave Courbet, other leading contemporary artists, and his own study of the great masters and of Japanese styles. The French set, 1858:

James Abbott McNeill Whistler
James McNeill Whistler was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA, in 1834. He spent five years of his childhood (1843-1848) in St. Petersburg, Russia, where his father, George Washington Whistler (1800-1849), a railroad engineer, was employed in the building of the St. Petersburg-Moscow railroad. The artist’s mother, Anna Matilda McNeill, was a devout Christian, whom he admired all his life. In his early manhood he exchanged his middle name ‘Abbott’ for her maiden name ‘McNeill’. In St. Petersburg young James received his first art lessons in the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts and also learnt French. In 1849, Major Whistler died and his wife decided to bring her family to their homeland, setting at Pomfret, Connecticut, where James attended the local school until, in 1851, he entered West Point, the famous military academy. West Point at the time was an exclusive school, to which cadets were selected by congressmen. No doubt that the fact that his father had trained at West Point secured Whistler’s entry. Never becoming a military man, Whistler remembered the three years spent at the academy with affection. Among all subjects Whistler succeeded only in drawing, special difficulties were caused by chemistry, which at last became the reason of his ejection from the academy. ‘Had silicon been a gas,’ He later declared, ’I would have been a general-major’. West Point was followed by a brief period of employment in the United States Geodetic and Coast Survey offices in Washington. In 1855, Whistler arrived in Paris, the artistic capital of Europe, with the intention of becoming an artist.

James McNeill Whistler
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. James Abbott McNeill Whistler ) was an American painter and etcher. He is perhaps best known for his nearly black-and-white full-length portrait of his mother, reading in a rocking chair, titled Arrangement in Gray and Black, No. 1 , but usually referred to as Whistler's Mother . Though American, Whistler lived and worked mainly in Britain and France. His painting The White Girl (1862) caused controversy when exhibited in London and, later, at the Salon des Refusés in Paris. The painting epitomised Whistler's theory that art should essentially be concerned with the beautiful arrangement of colors in harmony, not with the accurate portrayal of the natural world, as recommended by the critic John Ruskin . In 1878 Whistler sued Ruskin for libel after the critic condemned his painting Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Falling Rocket , calling the artist a "coxcomb". Whistler won a

JAMES MCNEILL WHISTLER Artist Also known as James Abbott McNeill Whistler Whistler's deft brushwork and mighty ego made him one of London's best-known painters in the second half of the 1800s. Born in Massachusetts, Whistler spent most of his adult life in England and France, in an era when an American artist in Europe was something of a rarity. He specialized in landscapes and (especially later in his career) portraits; stylistically he is often linked with Claude Monet and August Renoir, though he was not exactly part of the Impressionist movement. His etchings also are highly regarded. Witty, cranky and a bit of a devil, Whistler was a regular gadabout in British society. He had a famous long-running feud with the playwright Oscar Wilde, each of them trying to outwit the other with cutting public remarks. Some critics of the era considered Whistler's work to be smudgy and too radical; after viewing Whistler's 1875 study of fireworks over the Thames, Nocturne in Black and Gold: the Falling Rocket , John Ruskin wrote: "I have seen, and heard, much of cockney impudence before now; but never expected to hear a coxcomb ask two hundred guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public's face." Whistler successfully sued Ruskin for libel but was awarded only a farthing in damages, and the legal fees helped drive Whistler into bankruptcy in 1879. Among Whistler's other famous paintings are

Hunting for Old Paper with James McNeill Whistler
Martha Smith James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) was very interested in effects. He was flamboyant and dressed like a dandy with a broad-brimmed hat, a cane, and a monocle. As a serious artist and printmaker, he knew that the paper, as well as the ink colors, could change the look and mood of a picture, and he liked to experiment. Whistler was fairly consistent in his choices of paper for pastels, watercolors, and drawings. His pastels are most often on brown paper, making the chalk lines look bright and intense. for watercolors he used contemporary paper with a medium weight and texture and a very light color which could also be one of the colors in the painting. His drawings are usually on the smooth off-white paper of ordinary sketch books. However, for prints, Whistler used a variety of papers. Like many artists then and now, he thought that old paper, especially old Dutch paper, was better quality and more beautiful than new paper. One of the purposes in surveying the extensive collection of Whistler prints in the Freer Gallery, was to see how many of them are on old paper and how Whistler identified a sheet of paper as "old." Some of the characteristics of old paper are a somewhat uneven distribution of the fibers, dark stripes beside the chain lines, a watermark, creases, wear, and dirt. Dard Hunter uses the term "antique laid" to describe paper made by hand approximately before 1800, when the design of the paper mold caused the fibers to collect along the chain lines and look like dark stripes.

James McNeill Whistler
James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) was a master etcher and a painter who was driven by aesthetic theory. A masterful realist, he nonetheless frequently subverted the artistic conventions of the time in order to prevent a "narrative" interpretation of his work and force the viewer to deal with pure color and aesthetic value. Despite their representational basis, some of his paintings can even be seen as precursors to the much later abstract work of artists such as Mark Rothko.

James McNeill Whistler
James Abbott McNeill Whistler was born in the industrial town of Lowell, Massachusetts. Inducted into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, he accumulated so many demerits that he became a sore trial to the then-commandant Major Robert E. Lee. Although he prospered in his drawing class, Whistler's failings in chemistry at last prompted his expulsion from the academy. "Had silicon been a gas," he later observed, "I would have been a major general." One of a handful of great and original American artists, Whistler exerted a profound influence on his contemporaries and on the course of American art. He was the first to be captivated by the recently discovered Japanese art and readily incorporated its flattened forms, cropped figures, monochromatic colors, and economy of means into his own works. To negate any narrative intent or interpretation he entitled his paintings with musical nomenclature, such as nocturne and etude. In 1866, after an ambiguous involvement in Irish revolutionary conspiracies and lacking a war at home to satisfy his combative urge, he sailed off to Chile to abet the revolutionaries on that distant soil. Once on shore, however, he created his own revolution with a series of tonalist depictions of Valparaiso Harbor, such as the canvas currently on display. Whistler's removal to London soon exposed him to the thorny crochets of the current critical doyen, John Ruskin.

The painting essentially shows Joanna, wearing a white dress, standing on a wolfskin rug, in front of a white curtain. She holds a flower (white, of course), in her left hand and on the wolfskin rug and the carpet beneath, there are yet even more flowers. This is a predominantly vertical composition, giving off a feeling of stateliness or importance. The use of color is rather minimal with white and beige used extensively throughout, with accents of pink, green and blue seen in the flowers that make up the pattern of the carpet. The painting is well balanced with just enough information presented to keep the viewer interested. Through repeated patterns and colors, Whistler achieved a sense of harmony and unity.
