Whistler's Mother: Portrait of an Extraordinary Life
The portrait Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1 by James McNeill Whistler portrayed the artist’s mother, Anna, through a lens of unassuming domesticity.
However, as this book explores, there was a much more extraordinary character behind it. Daniel E Sutherland and Georgia Toutziari draw from Anna Whistler’s private diaries and letters to unearth the real story behind one of the most famous images of motherhood. Whistler’s past life in Brooklyn, Russia and the UK makes for a fascinating read, including astute political, social and cultural observations of past eras.
Discover how Whistler made her way from the slaveholding southern states to raising – and becoming an unofficial agent for – one of the 19th-century’s most-respected artists.
