Whistler, James Abbott McNeill
James Whistler (1834-1903) was an American painter based in London, England, who prided himself in creating harmony within his works. His portraits are most well-known, with Arrangement in Grey and Black no. 1 (commonly known as Whistler's Mother) being his most famous piece. His impressive landscapes with overarching themes have led him to be known as the father of Tonalism, and he influenced artists on both sides of the Atlantic. He was a close personal friend of Oscar Wilde for many years until a misunderstanding deteriorated their relationship. Wilde, in a bout of spiteful vindictiveness, later wrote the fantastical Portrait of Dorian Grey based on Whistler.
