  •  Agreed, and lots more (4+ / 0-)

    First, the Arrangements are really not typical of the rest of his work, so yes, just like the Mona Lisa, as you know if you saw Turner, Whistler, Monet . Lucky you for that, because I have the catalog with the essays out of the library (it's a very pretty book, too) and I hope I can find time to go through it in detail!

    And granted.  I'll give up on my obsession with "American" in Whistler's case, especially since he never renounced his citizenship (like Eliot, who I like less and less the more I learn about him) and take the Fantin-Latour painting as a measure of in what esteem Whistler was held in Paris during the 1860s.

    This is what I especially like about you. You make me think!
