Whistler: A Life for Art's Sake

A major biography of James McNeill Whistler, one of the most complex, intriguing, and important of America’s artists.

This engaging personal history dispels the popular notion of Whistler (1834–1903) as merely a combative, eccentric, and unrelenting publicity seeker. The Whistler revealed in these beautifully illustrated pages is an intense, introspective, and complex man, plagued by self-doubt and haunted by an endless pursuit of perfection in his painting and drawing.
