Portraits, Pastels, Prints: Whistler in The Frick Collection June 2 through August 23, 2009

This summer The Frick Collection presents a focus exhibition dedicated to the colorful and once controversial artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834–1903). The Frick’s four full-length portraits by Whistler will be displayed in the museum’s Oval Room alongside his evocative seascape Symphony in Grey and Green: The Ocean (1866). The presentation also includes a Cabinet installation of fifteen works on paper—pastels and etchings—from his Venetian sojourn of 1879–80.
