It has never happened before - it
may never happen again.
That's because an exhibition of late
works by James McNeill Whistler that
is as complex, as extensive and as
skillfully displayed as the current one
at the University, is something which
occurs only after years of planning,
negotiating and consulting, along with a
sprinkling of luck.
And, this special sense of
temporariness is all the more reason to
visit the Museum of Art, and savor the
101 Whistler masterpieces borrowed
from galleries, museums and personal
collections all over the world, and

Whistler stretches far and beyond the
famous realist portrait of his -mother,
formally titled "Arrangement in Black

art was modern in thought. If was an
art of reduction and discrimination of
detail. The resulting works offer k'
strength and harmony in their
simplicity of form.

ALTHOUGH THESE smaller works
which dominate most of the exhibit
have been somewhat neglected
throughout most of the century the
portrait was also a very important
means of creative expression for
Whistler, and basically unsuccessful
when executed. When depicting ,his
subjects he neither endowed them with
qualities which were nonexistent nor
flattered certain ones that did.
Instead, he painted what he saw and
enjoyed. He was known for taking what.
pleased him, and leaving the rest. N
There is a softness in Whistler's style
of painting a portrait and one'.s
attention is always diverted to the eyes;
eyes that are deep and penetrating bllt
incredibly vulnerable and sensitive 4t
the same time, magical eyes that
slowly grip you and bring you under
their spell and don't let you go, as in his
portrait of a young girl entitled, "LittLe
Rose of Lyme Regis."
Whistler once said, "As music is tlh
poetry of sound, so is painting the
poetry of sight." A finer group of poems
may never have been painted.
