Alex Gordon Lecture in the History of Art: “Whistler’s Art: ‘An Arrangement in Line, Form & Colour'”

By Margaret F. MacDonald, Professor of History of Art, University of Glasgow

A skillful draftsman, a master printmaker, and a controversial painter, James McNeill Whistler created strikingly perceptive and atmospheric masterpieces. His art and writings reveal his strong response to color and how this conflicted with his belief in the central importance of drawing. This lecture focuses on works on paper that illustrate the development of his art from 1855 to 1903.
