Tour: James McNeill Whistler

A guided tour of the exhibition with Sara-Jayne Parsons, Exhibition Curator at the Bluecoat and Rosie Cooper, Project Curator at Liverpool Biennial.

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.
