Whistler and Thames

On 16 October the Dulwich Picture Gallery will open An American in London: Whistler and the Thames (CLICK). American-born James Abbott McNeill Whistler first arrived in London in 1859 and his early paintings of this period mark one of his most successful and profound assaults on the art establishment of his day. This major exhibition will include his paintings of Chelsea and the Thames River, as well as prints, drawings, watercolours and pastels. His Nocturnes are highlights of the show. Above is his Self-portrait Sketch. Entry will cost £11 for adults, £10 silver surfers.

Hi, Kris

Yes, missed it. Google Reader was ended this month. So I'm not as in-touch as I was. Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.
