Abstract:

"In his Gentle Art of Making Enemies the expatriate American Painter James Abbot McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) included these excerpts from the court proceedings of 1878 in his libel suit against John Ruskin. Whistler was awarded a farthing in damages, but public sentiment so strongly favored Ruskin that Whistler was forced into bankruptcy. The trial, marked by considerable hilarity and the sallies of Whistler's pugnacious wit, was a rather dubious attempt to prove at law the viability of a work of art, Nocturne in Black and Gold--The Falling Rocket."
