James Whistler James Whistler was born in 1834 in Massachusetts, the son of a West Point graduate and civil engineer. [1] He moved with his family at the age of nine to St. Peterdburg, Ru ssia, where he studied drawing. At age 14, he joined his sister her husband in London to continue his studies in art. A year later, following the death of his father, he returned to America and lived in Connecticut. He attended but flunked out of West Point because of his inadquacies in chemistry. [2] Affronted at what he considered to be America’s poor treatment of artists, and perhaps because of his academic failure, Whistler moves to Europe permanently in 1855 at the age of 21. He first lived and studied in Paris, where he was influenced by Coubet’s Realism and was associated with the avant garde. Whistler moved to London four years later and became known for his outspokenness, controversy, expensive lifestyle and frequent debt. [3] In 1866 he traveled to Chile, returning to London a year later. By 1879, he was bankrupt, and went to Venice for a year, where be was commissioned to create a series paintings of the city. By the late 1880s he had achieved international fame, and was president of the Society of British Artists from 1886 to 1888. He published his manifesto, the Gentle Art of Making Enemies, in 1890. In 1888 at the age of 54 he married Beatrix Godwin, a widow who died eight years later of cancer, Whistler fo llowed her in death seven years later, at the age of 69[4]. Whistler's paintings are well-regarded, though he never achieved greatness; nevertheless, he considered to have been a major influence in England's modern art movement. He hated the narrative, and he refused to teach morals through art. He rejected scenes of ordinary life, preferring to depict well-designed moments. Critics have noted that the placid nature of his paintings was in sharp contrast to the wildness of his lifestyle. One of his more famous works, generally
referred to as “ Whistler's Mother" but which he controversially titled "Arrangement in
Grey and Black, NO. 1” places him in the pantheon of American artists. It is thus ironic that he spent his adult life in Europe, primarily in England, and that painting of his mother was purchased by government of France and resides in the Museed’ Orsay of Paris.

 A. Whistler and his family
