Whistler and the Thames

I recommend that you read in The Economist the article "A river runs through it" about the exhibition “An American in London: Whistler and the Thames” on show at the Freer-Sackler Gallery in Washington, DC.

This exhibition has already been shown at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London and the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, Massachusetts.

The video in The Economist's article (embedded below) is worth every minute of your time.
