9780002119948: Whistler: A Biography

James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) was the most notorious & misunderstood American artist of his time, & also the most influential. He is one of the most recognized names in painting because of his celebrated -- & endlessly satirized -- 'Whistler's Mother'. Born in Mass., he wound up living most of his life in Russia, France, & England. His sense of belligerent alienation erupted in ways that were endlessly fascinating. His insatiable urge to take his grievances to court; his feuds & vendettas with Ruskin, Wilde, & Beardsley; his acid wit & libelous invective; his ability to set fashions in art, dress, even lifestyle; his love affairs & relentless social climbing -- his was a flamboyant life told 'with clarity, judgment, & liveliness.'

About the Author:

Stanley Weintraub is the author of many books, including Victoria: An Intimate Biography and The London Yankees. He is Evan Pugh Professor Emeritus of Arts and Humanities at Pennsylvania State University.

From Publishers Weekly:

"New material, superb scholarship, human and artistic insights will probably establish Weintraub's elegant biography of James McNeill Whistler as definitive," said PW , praising this treatment of the artist who emerges here as a difficult person and extraordinary painter. Photos.
