 James Abbott McNeill Whistler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Most of his life was spent in Europe, where he adopted the slogan “art for art’s sake.” By this Whistler meant that art need have no other purpose than to please through its beauty.
Art, according to Whistler, need not have an instructive or morally elevating subject matter, as most painters before and during his lifetime believed.
In 1877 he exhibited a number of landscapes done in the Japanese manner; these paintings, which he called nocturnes, outraged conservative art opinion, which did not understand his avoidance of narrative detail, his layers of atmospheric color, and his belief in art for art's sake.

 A Stroke of Genius Fine Art Books
This lavishly illustrated book focuses on fashion in Whistler’s art as a key to understanding his life and work and as a new means of exploring his relationship with women and his portraits of them.
While devoted to the expression of the beautiful, he was among the first to recognize that popularized arts and commercialized leisure were complex, interrelated phenomena that made urban life "modern." Whistler's showmanship had far greater impact than countless imitations of his The White Girl and Portrait of the Painter's Mother might suggest.
His art was profoundly influenced by the written word, especially the writings of Baudelaire, Swinburne, Mallarmé, and Edgar Allan Poe.

 Web of lies? Historical knowledge on the Internet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
A page on the Web site of the highly respectable Art Institute of Chicago—the twelfth page H-Bot scanned to answer “When did Monet move to Giverny?”—erroneously claims that “Monet moved to Giverny almost twenty years” after he left Argenteuil in 1874 (Art Institute of Chicago, 2005).
They prefer to view their discipline as an art or a craft rather than a science and they believe that the best historians look at “everything” and then reflect on what they have read rather than, for example, systematically sampling sources in the manner of a sociologist.

There can be little doubt that Bouguereau was one of the most talented painters of his time, but it is a shame that he has fallen into obscurity with museum curators and those supposedly sophisticated about art who think that ugliness and lack of content imply depth and talent.
