Best known for the groundbreaking portrait of his mother, James McNeill Whistler was the original art star. But beneath the high gloss, the struggle of this genius to find his own voice resulted in a breakaway style that moved painting towards abstraction and would revolutionize the art world in his time-and beyond. Dramatic re-creations, art, graphics, and interviews combine to profile this fascinating character.

Mostly a biography, with very little discussion or interpretation or criticism of his works. Its well-paced and entertaining.
