James Abbott McNeill Whistler Sold at Auction Prices

Figure painter, Painter, Etcher, Lithographer, Caricaturist, b. 1834 - d. 1903

Artist James McNeill Whistler was an important influence in four major art schools: Realism, Aestheticism, Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism. A proponent of art for art's sake, he titled many works to point at the relationship between art and music. James McNeill Whistler's prints were among the first works by an American in Europe to incorporate Japanese influences.

As a developing artist, James McNeill Whistler studied at the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts in Russia. After his father's death, he studied drawing and mapmaking at West Point. He learned how to make etchings while working for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Many of James Abbott McNeill Whistler's etchings date from the time he spent in Venice, when he wanted to portray Venice as its locals perceived it. If you favor etching artwork, you can find many fine examples of etchings for sale at auctions and galleries

M.0766The present subject captures the Rio dei Tre Ponte from the Fondamenta San Marco. The Ponte da Ca'Rizzi is in the left foreground and the Ponte dei Tre Ponte in the distance. The area has changed considerably since Whistler's depiction, with bridges altered and rebuilt. The bridge depicted in the sketch on the verso of the sheet is the Ponte del Guglie. As Dr Alastair Grieve notes, Whistler has drawn the view from a slightly elevated position so that he is looking down on the fondamenta, from a bridge that is no longer extant. He has used the edge of the structure to form a vertical axis in the centre of his paper. The bridge with two arches in the distance in his pastel is part of the Ponte dei Tre Ponti, a knotty interchange of bridges which was rebuilt in 1933 when the Rio Novo was made. It is obscured...today by a bridge with a pointed top, the Ponte del Pagan. (Grieve, op. cit.p.59). His delight in the architecture and the constantly changing views of the city is evident in the present work, which seems to embody the lively portrayal that Whistler wrote in a letter to his mother describing, the colours of the walls and their reflections on the canals are more gorgeous than ever - and with sun shining upon the polished marble, mingled with rich, toned bricks and plaster this amongst the city of palaces becomes really a fairyland - created one would think especially for the painter.

The present view with its sophisticated combination of black outlines and restrained areas of colour, shows the entrance to the Rio de la Do Torre, one of several, small, narrow, straight rii (the smaller canals) in the Sante Croce region of Venice, which run from the Grand Canal, into an intricate maze of buildings. The pastel must have been drawn from a boat, which was moored at the side of the palace Ca' Pesaro and looks southwest down to the Ponte del Ravano, with glimpses through to the Ponte Santa Maria Materdomini beyond. For his depictions of these narrow viewpoints, Whistler has deliberately chosen a similarly narrow format of paper. His former pupil Mortimer Mempes describes Whistler revealing his technique. I began first of all by seizing upon the chief point of interest. Perhaps it might have been the extreme distance - the little palace and the shipping beneath the bridge. If so, I would begin doing that distance in elaboration, and then would expand from it until I came to the bridge, which I would draw with one sweep. If by chance, I didn't see the whole of the bridge I would not put in in. In this way the picture must necessarily be a perfect thing from start to finish. (M. Mempes, Reminiscences of Whistler, London, 1903, p. 22-3). Thomas Way Jnr and his father were the leading practitioners in London at the time in the art of lithography and taught Whistler the process. They also provided all of the distinctive brown paper that Whistler took with him to Venice. Way, the son, helped Whistler with the 1881 exhibition of Venetian pastels and produced a series of colour lithographs for the publication, Studio, including the present work. Walter Jessop was an ophthalmic surgeon with a practice on Harley Street. He lent the present work to the Rotterdam exhibition in 1906, one of a small group of international posthumous exhibitions organised shortly after the artist's death.

M.1606.The present work is one of three pastels depicting Ethel Warwick, all drawn on 4 June 1900 at the artist's studio, 8 Fitzroy Street, according to Birnie Philip. It has not been possible to identify who Ethel Warwick was, even though she also modelled for Philip Wilson Steer (1860-1942), sitting for his paintings, Hydrangeas, 1901 (Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge) and Portrait of Miss Ethel Warwick, 1902 (South African National Gallery, Cape Town)This study is more fully worked up than either of Whistler's other studies of Ethel, both of which are in the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery. In one, the model is apparently sleeping, with one arm tucked under her head (M.1604). It appears to have been rapidly executed, mainly in black, with a few coloured highlights. The third pastel shows Ethel in a more provocative pose, holding an apple in her left hand, with her arm draped over the back of the sofa (M.1605). Her figure has been worked up in coloured pastel, as has the detail of the apple, whilst the background is lightly sketched in. There is a further similar study of an unidentified model asleep, in the Terra Museum of American Art, Chicago which was also with Rosalind Birnie Philip and at Agnew's at the same time in 1974. As with so many of his pastels, he worked over another drawing with which he was dissatisfied. The present study is drawn over a study of a woman in blue against a yellow background, drawn lengthways. The present drawing has been signed with Whistler's lively butterfly monogram, based on a stylised design of his initials, which the artist developed in the late 1860s, following criticism of his overtly conspicuous signature. It became so synonymous with his work, that collectors who owned work that predated his use of the butterfly, sent their work to him to have it added retrospectively. His fascination with Japanese aesthetics must have played a role in its formation and it was carefully positioned as part of the overall composition and not merely a maker's mark. The artist's friends and biographer's Joseph and Elizabeth Pennell recalled seeing unfinished works with a highly finished butterfly included, emphasising the importance of the monogram in the overall scheme. Whistler's pupil, Mortimer Mempes recalls so regularly discussing where it should be positioned, that it used to be a little joke between us, and after some months of habit I was invariably able to put my finger on the spot where the butterfly should be placed to create the balance of the picture (M. Mempes, Reminiscences of Whistler, London, 1903, p..254). The design of his monogram evolved over the years and was altered to reflect the artist's mood, or specific events, for example at the time of his trial versus Ruskin, the butterfly had a sting in its tail. When in 1888, he was married, it had a stylised trefoil on its top to resemble his wife's initials and to symbolise luck. The present sheet formed part of several notable collections. Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958) was Whistler's sister-in-law who acted as his secretary and model during his life and executrix and heir on his death. In 1938 she donated a substantial part of Whistler's collection to the University of Glasgow, with further gifts in 1955 and on her death. Apparently, towards the end of his life, Whistler had specified to his dealers that nothing should go to an English Collection, preferring instead that his work go to French, Scottish or American collectors. Glasgow was a fitting location; the city and university had long been supportive of the artist. The Corporation of Glasgow made Whistler's first public institutional purchase, buying his portrait of Thomas Carlyle and the University of Glasgow awarded Whistler an honorary degree shortly before he died. Sir Bruce Ingram (1877-1963) was a journalist, entrepreneur and newspaper editor. He formed a notable collection of art and on his death, left 40 British works on paper to his friend and former employee Professor Luke Herrmann (1933-2016). Early in his career, Herrmann worked for Ingram at the Illustrated London News and was encouraged by Ingram in his growing interest in art. Herrmann went on to serve as Assistant Keeper at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and Professor of History of Art at Leicester University and was the author of several works on British Art.

                  James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) was an American-born artist, known for his contributions to both painting and printmaking. He is best known for his distinctive style and his role in the Aesthetic movement. Here are some key points about James McNeill Whistler:1. **Early Life and Education:** James Whistler was born on July 11, 1834, in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA. He later moved to Europe to pursue his art education.2. **Settling in Europe:** Whistler spent most of his life in Europe, particularly in France and England. He studied at the École Impériale et Spéciale des Beaux-Arts in Paris and later lived in London.3. **Tonalism:** Whistler was associated with the Tonalist movement, which emphasized the use of color and tone to create mood and atmosphere in paintings. His work often featured muted color palettes and a focus on the play of light and shadow.4. **Nocturnes:** Whistler's series of "Nocturnes" paintings, particularly his depictions of the River Thames in London at night, are some of his most famous works. These paintings captured the tranquility and beauty of nighttime scenes.5. **Portrait Paintings:** Whistler was also known for his portrait paintings, which included portraits of his mother, known as "Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1," and other prominent figures of his time. His portraits were characterized by their subtle, refined style.6. **Printmaking:** Whistler was an accomplished printmaker and etcher. His series of prints, such as the "Venice Set" and "Twenty-Six Etchings," are highly regarded for their technical skill and artistry.7. **Legal Battles:** Whistler was involved in several legal disputes during his career, including a famous lawsuit against the art critic John Ruskin, who had criticized one of Whistler's paintings. Whistler won the case but was awarded only a nominal sum in damages.8. **Aesthetic Movement:** Whistler was a key figure in the Aesthetic movement, which rejected the idea that art should have a moral or narrative purpose. Instead, Aestheticism focused on the idea that art should be appreciated for its own beauty and form.9. **Influence on Modern Art:** Whistler's emphasis on abstraction, color, and the idea of "art for art's sake" had a profound influence on modern art movements, including Impressionism and abstract art.10. **Legacy:** James McNeill Whistler's work is celebrated for its innovative approach to color and composition. He is considered one of the important figures in the transition from 19th-century academic art to the more experimental and avant-garde art of the 20th century.11. **Passing:** James McNeill Whistler passed away on July 17, 1903, in London, leaving behind a legacy of art that continues to be admired and studied.James McNeill Whistler's contributions to the world of art, particularly in his innovative approach to color and his role in the Aesthetic movement, have left an enduring mark on the history of art and aesthetics.

                  JAMES ABBOT MCNEILL WHISTLER AMERICAN, 1834-1903 DROUET Etching Lower center left titled in plate: Drouet Sculpteur; lower right signed and dated: Whistler 1859 Catalogue note: One of art's most inventive and influential printmakers, James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) made nearly 500 etchings over five decades, as well as some 180 lithographs. As a gifted young draftsman, he recognized the medium's ability to record and reproduce sketches scratched quickly into the wax coating of copper plates; as a mature artist, he immersed himself in the complexities of etching, drypoint and controlled inking to produce striking works of astounding subtlety. Charles L. Drouet (1836-1908) was a minor sculptor and a friend of Whistler when they were both art students in Paris in the later 1850s. Whistler called him 'a most extraordinary person! He is a sculptor ... a gourmet ... a most generous fellow', and Edward Kennedy, author of Whistler's catalogue raisonné, later astutely observed how Drouet 'had a head well thatched with hair'.
