Stanley Weintraub. James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) was the most notorious & misunderstood American artist of his time, & also the most influential. He is one of the most recognized names in painting because of his celebrated -- & endlessly satirized -- “Whistler’s Mother”. Born in Mass., he wound up living most of his life in Russia, France, & England. His sense of belligerent alienation erupted in ways that were endlessly fascinating. His insatiable urge to take his grievances to court; his feuds & vendettas with Ruskin, Wilde, & Beardsley; his acid wit & libelous invective; his ability to set fashions in art, dress, even lifestyle; his love affairs & relentless social climbing -- his was a flamboyant life told “with clarity, judgment, & liveliness.”
