Michigan Museum of Art Presents James McNeill Whistler Prints Exhibition

The Michigan Museum of Art presents On Beauty and the Everyday: The Prints of James McNeill Whistler, on view through November 28, 2010.

UMMA’s rare and important collection of works on paper by James McNeill Whistler represents one of the finest holdings of Whistler’s graphic output in North America. This exhibition will feature nearly 100 works of art from UMMA’s extraordinary Whistler collection, which covers the artist’s entire career in Europe, ranging from his student days and early orientation towards Realism to the evanescent and atmospheric lithographs and etchings of his mature style.
