The art market dealing with Islamic art is well represented in Paris, but not on the same scale as that in London.
Rarely displayed, the collections of Islamic art in the French central regions are unknown to the public; moreover, the history of the provenance and acquisition of their pieces are poorly documented.
Paris is one of the important markets for Islamic art, with experts of international reputation, such as Jean Soustiel and Marie-Christine David, whose gallery, first established in 1926 by Joseph Soustiel is the oldest in Paris specializing in Islamic art.

 James McNeill Whistler: Selected Works from the Hunterian Art Gallery   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
A free thinker, Whistler is attributed with advancing a concept for art embraced later by the middle of the 20th century.
Whistler's art is in many respects the opposite of his often-aggressive personality, being discreet and subtle, but the creed that lay behind it was radical.
Because of Whistler's lack of coherent style, his belief in aesthetic art, and rejection of traditional story-telling or moral art, and his exploration of any mediums, the public often did not know what to make of Whistler, and so he was never as famous or given as much credit as other artists of this period.

 Victorian Art in Britain - Briton Riviere
This distinction, however, in nowise tempted him from his devotion to art, nor did it first lead him to search, as might have been expected, in the pages of Greek and Roman literature for his pictorial themes.
The sleeping lions at the mouth of her cave, under the name of “Genius Loci,” was the second canvas of the year.
In passing, for instance, in the present year of 1879, from, say, “The Poacher’s Widow” to that picture of his to be hung in an adjacent galley called “In Manus Tuas, Domine,” there was something very significant in the large range of thought and idea which they indicated on the part of the artist.
