Summary:
As this book reveals, Whistler's struggle to find a "Venice of the Venetians" proved profoundly significant, challenging and redefining the ways in which others viewed the city. It also traces the remarkable breadth of his influence on artists in Europe and the United States, including John Singer Sargent, whose lifelong association with Whistler-begun during their stay in Venice-receives a new, in-depth appraisal.  Read more...

Abstract:

As this book reveals, Whistler's struggle to find a "Venice of the Venetians" proved profoundly significant, challenging and redefining the ways in which others viewed the city. It also traces the remarkable breadth of his influence on artists in Europe and the United States, including John Singer Sargent, whose lifelong association with Whistler-begun during their stay in Venice-receives a new, in-depth appraisal. Whistler's impact on pictorial photography, notably on the work of Alfred Stieglitz, is explored here for the first time.
