Labeled eccentric and radical during his lifetime and long after, James Abbott McNeill Whistler had a significant impact on American and European artists and designers. Join author and Whistler scholar Linda Merrill for an in-depth discussion about this masterful painter and printmaker, including his friendships, battles, and lawsuits with other artists and his contradictory quests for a bohemian Parisian life and a triumphant return to America. Hear about his self-promotion in world’s fairs and learn about his Pittsburgh connections.
