Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, James Whistler became one of the most influential late 19th-century American painters and etchers, although he lived primarily in England.  He worked in a wide variety of styles that included Impressionism, Symbolism, and Art Nouveau.  He was especially influential in the Tonalist movement and was a catalyst for those who wanted to break away from prescribed academic methods, credited with being the first American modernist to influence European ar (showing 500 of 10957 characters).
