In addition to landscapes and seascapes, this collection also includes selections from his nocturnes, which are probably better-known and loved than either of the other categories. The introductory essay is very good, concentrating on why Victorian audiences saw Whistler's work as revolutionary whilst it is so difficult for us to see it as such. The plates are well-reproduced and of sufficient size, and the captions are illuminating. This book is well-produced and selected. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823057267, Paperback)

This book reexamines the colorful American artist's all-but-forgotten role as "midwife at the birth of abstract painting". In text that sparkles with the painter's own vivid epigrams, the author documents how Whistler's unorthodox pictorial design and his new vision of space set the stage for geometric abstraction in 20th century art. 32 full-page color reproductions.
