Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Memories of James McNeill Whistler the Artist In writing these few reminiscences, my intention has been to try to recall the picture of the man in his work as I knew him during many years. Soon after Whistler s death the Art Workers Guild devoted an evening to his memory, and gathered together a small but very fine collection, representing all sides of his pictorial work, in Clifford s Inn Hall. This little book is based on a paper which I read at that meeting; and I have tried to bring out the side of his character which appealed to me most and to show him as the keen, untiring student and worker, rather than the brilliant figure in society or the keen fighter. A word as to the illustrations, which are mostly facsimiles of sketches by Whistler. Some are selected because they seem to me to show the artist thinking aloud as it were; many of these were pinned to the wall in his studio for a number of years; indeed, he did not part with them until some time in the eighties.

Book Description John Lane, the Bodley Head, London, 1912. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. James Abbott McNeill Whistler (July 10, 1834 - July 17, 1903) was an American-born, British-based artist. Averse to sentimentality and moral allusion in painting, he was a leading proponent of the credo "art for art's sake". His famous signature for his paintings was in the shape of a stylized butterfly possessing a long stinger for a tail. The symbol was apt, for it combined both aspects of his personality his art was characterized by a subtle delicacy, while his public persona was combative. Finding a parallel between painting and music, Whistler titled many of his paintings "arrangements", "harmonies", and "nocturnes", emphasizing the primacy of tonal harmony. His most famous painting is Whistler's Mother (1871), the revered and oft parodied portrait of motherhood. Whistler influenced the art world and the broader culture of his time with his artistic theories and his friendships with leading artists and writers. Rebound in strong library binding. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Ex-Library. Bookseller Inventory # 021795
