The museum announced this week that “On Beauty and the Everyday: The Prints of James McNeill Whistler” will run Aug. 21 until Nov. 28.
The exhibition will explore Whistler’s life and career; his artistic themes and concerns; the tools and techniques that Whistler employed as a printmaker; and the interests and legacy of collector Margaret Watson Parker.
Most of Whistler’s works at the museum were from Parker’s collection.
While the exhibition is focused Whistler’s prints, the artist is widely known for the iconic painting of his mother.
