In the Wake of the Butterfly: James McNeill Whistler and His Circle in Venice

By: Fairfield University

January 23 - April 4, 2014

As a mature artist, the great American expatriate James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) began using a stylized butterfly in place of a signature to maximize his work’s aesthetic qualities. Whistler’s concern with an immersive visual experience is highlighted in this focus show, which features works on paper from his Venetian series together with related images by Frank Duveneck (1848-1919), Otto Henry Bacher (1856-1909), Mortimer Luddington Menpes (1855-1938), Joseph Pennell (1860-1926), and Clifford Isaac Addams (1876-1942). This exhibition complements Reflections and Undercurrents: Ernest Roth and Printmaking in Venice, 1900-1940, on view concurrently at the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery.

HOURS
Monday – Friday 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., and select Saturdays.
