4.0 out of 5 stars Good General Background to the Artist and His Work 31 Oct. 2012
By Ian Marks - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This was the catalogue of an exhibition put together by the Tate, the Musee d'Orsay and the National Gallery of Art Washington, which toured the three galleries in 1995. It doesn't claim to be a full catalogue of Whistler's work, but is a good cross-section and provides ready access to information about the artist, his times and relevant influences, along with a good sample of his output. The printing is done on good quality filled paper and the book provides faithful reproductions of the works illustrated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Whistler Book I've Seen 12 Sept. 2005
By James - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had been looking for a Whistler book, and this was simply the best one that I was able to track down. It includes the color images of the artist's best-klnown works, including his portraits, nocturnes, and etchings. The text is informative and comprehensive. My only complaint is that many of the images were smaller than I would have liked. When I get a book like this, the artwork is the main draw--not the text. More full-page images would have been nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars The artist as the perfectionist 13 Mar. 2001
By S. A Troutt - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book does an excellent job of exploring the many contradictions of the life and career of an artist who was both his own biggest fan/promoter and his own harshest critic. The book presents the many talents (artist,etcher,interior designer to name a few) and his many flaws (vain, arrogant, bitter and self serving attitude) while still showing the human side of the artist . The illustrations are complete and a glorious showing of both his popular works as well as his less known pieces. The triad of this book, "Diabolical Designs" and "Beyond the Myth" reveal an artist who deserves much more critical and popular attention.
