“Whistler and Roussel: Linked Visions”
Art Institute Links Work of American Artist James McNeil Whistler and His European Contemporaries
A display of 175 etchings, lithographs, drawings and paintings give a full picture of the creative exchange among artists James McNeil Whistler, Theodore Roussel, and others in their 19th century artistic community. Together they made technical and aesthetic developments in lithography and etching. Whistler and Roussel: Linked Visions also features unique frames, designed and painted by Roussel, which complement the artwork within -- and historical ephemera that charts the friendship and collaboration between the two artists.
