Whistler: etchings magnified

Whistler etchingsGlasgow University has launched The Whistler Etching Project. This online  Catalogue Raisonné  explores over 490 etchings by James McNeill Whistler .

Powerful zooming tools enable  a examination of every detail of the etching process; plate edges, cross-hatching, open-bites.

Whistler’s  draughtmanship, compositional and technical skills are evident and for me, awe-inspiring.
