Though he is now regarded as one of America's best artists, Whistler was not always well thought of in his time. This was particularly true during his time in Europe. This look at Whistler shows the career of the painter as he moved to Paris in the 19th century and created experimental works there. During his time in Europe, he battled an art critic in court as each sued each other in a dispute stemming from a bad review given to the painter. As modern art and realism battled it out in court as well as the public's minds, a new era in art was dawning. See many of Whistler's best works including his later works that show his impressionism that was beginning to emerge. The painter's relationships with other well-known artists, including Monet, are also examined in this illuminating video that delves into the changing face of art and how the best artists have struggled with critics.
