New York: Hugh Lauter Levin Associates, Inc, 1989. Hardcover. VG (Ex-gallery owned, with label mark on spine, few interior marks, slight notice only of any use, quite clean.). Blue cloth, gilt letters on spine & front cover, color illus. dust jacket, 378 pp., many BW and color illus. Considers the life and work of American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903), and tells the story as it has never been told before. "Explores Whistler's relation to the introduction of Impressionism, of modern-day subject matter, and of influences from the turn-of-the-century Symbolist movement into the mainstream of British art. Whistler spoke out against the creation of art as a commodity, and as a soulless imitation of nature. Yet he shrewdly recognized the economic realities of his day and, even though his misty nocturnal paintings seemed insubstantial, unfinished, and subversive to many, he made a success of his own notoriety." (dj) A substantial tome. (Inventory #: 155448)
