James Whistler Etchings & Lithographs

James Abbott McNeill Whistler, an American-born (1834-1903) artist, is best known for his 1871 painted portrait familiar to most as "Whistler's Mother." Whistler spent much of his adult life in Europe, primarily England, where he was finally laid to rest at age 69. James Whistler art was prolific, consisting of more than 500 paintings, mostly portraits, including a number of self-portraits, and landscapes. You'll note that many James Whistler prints appear nearly monochromatic, with strong emphasis on combinations of black and white.

Whistler produced a great many etchings and lithographs. He gained a solid reputation as an etcher and is said to have taken extreme care over the printing of these etchings, including the types of papers used. Here we have a fine selection of James Whistler etchings and Whistler lithographs. AffordableArt101 proudly offers quality Whistler prints for sale at very attractive prices.
