An American in London: Whistler andf the Thames

Whistler first arrived in London in 1859 and his early paintings of this period mark one of his most successful and profound assaults on the art establishment of his day. This major exhibition devoted to the American born artist will include an array of paintings of Chelsea and the Thames River, along with prints and rarely seen drawings, watercolours and pastels. The exhibition will culminate in the display some of Whistler’s stunning and iconic Nocturnes including Blue and Gold – Old Battersea Bridge (1872-1877).

"captivating, erudite, unexpected" The Financial Times.
