A Short Biography of James Abbott McNeill Whistler

"As music is the poetry of sound, so is painting the poetry of sight, and the subject-matter has nothing to do with harmony of sound or colour."
—James Abbott McNeill Whistler

James Abbott McNeill Whistler painted a number of exquisite paintings, but is largely remembered for one titled Arrangement in grey and black No. 1, and assigned an indelible nickname by an approving public. “Whistler’s Mother” is an elegant somber portrait of his mother, Anna, rendered in richly muted tones.
