Tour: James McNeill Whistler at the Bluecoat

2 August 2014


Free, booking required

Simone Mair, Assistant Curator at Liverpool Biennial leads this tour of the exhibition.

Outspoken and argumentative, dressed in his black patent shoes and with a white plume of hair coiffured amongst black waves, the painter James McNeill Whistler (US, 1834–1903) cultivated a charismatic public persona who challenged the art community and elicited the mocking attention of the popular press.
