Etchings of Whistler and His Circle

Etchings of Whistler and His Circle

Art Show
James McNeill Whistler ranks as one of the foremost masters of etching. Much influenced by the prints of Rembrandt, whom he considered “the high priest of art,” Whistler brought to the medium a unique artistic sensibility and a highly refined technical skill. His etchings range from simple plein air sketches done in one sitting to elaborate compositions that underwent multiple states (changes to the printing plate) before completion. A tireless experimenter, Whistler exploited various papers, inks, and ways of wiping his plates to create the luminous effects he sought.
