Study James McNeil Whistler’s gossamer brushwork and delicate use of line, with which he created some of the most beautiful—and most controversial­­—artwork of the nineteenth century. Featuring a group of exquisite small paintings on loan from the Terra Foundation for American Art along with prints from WCMA’s collection, some in multiple states, the installation lends itself to the exploration of Whistler’s artistic process and creative choices.
