An American in London: Whistler and the Thames has had 30,000 visitors in the 11 weeks since it opened at Dulwich Picture Gallery! The run finishes there on Sunday, 12 January 2014. It will probably be rather busy, so get there early!

Then, weather permitting, the exhibition goes on to the Addison Gallery of American Art. An addition to the show will be the bold and beautiful oil painting, Chelsea in Ice (reproduced below). It is currently making its way to Andover, Massachusetts, from Colby College Museum of Art, Maine, where, last time I heard, it was 20 degrees below. The picture should feel right at home!

During the same period, an equal number of people accessed the Whistler etchings website at http://etchings.arts.gla.ac.uk/ This is a cool but less extreme way of getting to know about Whistler!


About mfmmacdonald

I am an artist and art historian, and my research is focussed on the work and life of James McNeill Whistler. Based in the School of Culture and Creative Arts, University of Glasgow, I am Director of the Whistler Paintings and Etchings Projects. These blogs are informal, and, I hope, interesting and even quirky discussions of individual works and events related to Whistler.
