James McNeill Whistler

May

30

James McNeill Whistler (1834 – 1903) was a complicated artist who approached his life and work in a unique, often unorthodox way. At the age of 11 he began studying fine art in Russia and realized art would be his profession. He would later tell people he was born in St. Petersburg, Russia as opposed to his actual birthplace of Lowell, Massachusetts.
