If you are a printmaker or a student of printmaking, you MUST have this book. Katharine Lochnan tells Whistler's life story in detail, within the context of his time and with clarity. The many superb reproductions are a gold mine of the etcher's art. While Whistler was an expatriate most of his life and living between Paris and London, America still claims him as one of the greatest of all U.S. artists. If anyone has any doubts, this book illustrates why Whistler's prints rank with those of Goya, Blake and yes, even Rembrandt van Rijn. This is the Yale/Ago exhibition catalog of 1984, NOT the Dover publication mentioned in the product description under Editorial Reviews.

Nice book but nothing special. Totally misrepresented. Several good etchings are missing. Bought as gift at 46.00 will be returning. Now less than a week later book is listed by same dealer for 128.00 along with an equal bump in all other copies listed. Pay the 4.00 for the dover reprint.

Went to an art exhibit in Kentucky which included some etchings by Whistler which I loved. Bought this book when I returned home. It is a lovely book. Love the etchings of Venice, Italy.
