Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A personalized look at the life and times of James Abbott McNeill Whistler as presented
to the '81 Club 14 February 2011 by Mrs. Alan R. Marsh.

During the course of his work for the art patron, Frederick R. Leyland, a Liverpool ship
owner, the following transpired:

"That gave the excitable Whistler a clear field. Alone in the house, he more than touched
up the room with a little gold paint. He let his imagination run wild with peacock feather
designs on the ceiling, ornate peacocks in gilded paint on the shutters, and around the
walls.

'Well, you know, I just painted on and on. I went on - without design or sketch - putting
in every touch with such freedom...And the harmony blue and gold developing, you
know, I forgot everything in my joy of it.'

And, most shockingly, he painted over the leather walls.

Now about those leather walls. The leather had been bought by Thomas Jekyll at great
expense to Mr. Leyland. It had been part of the dowry of Catherine of Aragon who
brought it from Spain. It was richly embossed and trimmed, and important in its own
right.

Whistler had covered all the visible rich antique Spanish leather completely with a thick
coat of peacock blue paint. "
