James McNeill Whistler

Whistler was born in Massachusetts in 1834. He attended West Point Military Academy, but did not care for a military career. Upon his arrival in London in 1858, Whistler began in earnest to distinguish his etching career with the "Thames" and "Venice" series. On doing the Venice prints, he trimmed the margins right to the plate mark leaving only a tab for his signature, which was generally a penciled butterfly. This was done to spite collectors who he felt, were more enamored with large margins than the artwork itself. Whistler's prominence in the field of etching is enormous and cannot be written in a few words. His influence on other artists can be read in, Whistler and His Circle in Venice, Denker, Eric, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, 2003, and The Stamp of Whistler, Getscher, Robert H. and Staley, Allen, Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, 1977.
