Gail-Nina resumes her series of triads of art lectures on linked topics with three talks on James Whistler. As an American artist at home in the rapidly changing art worlds of both London and Paris, Whistler occupies a unique place in the world of 19th century art. A dandy, a self-promoter and a pioneer of exhibition design, his active awareness of radical changes in the style, content and dissemination of art puts him at the cutting edge of a modern outlook.
