This exhibit presents six prints by Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate both Whistler’s innovations and the different ways in which his work affected that of the artists who followed him. While artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler’s innovative style and approach, they also had an impact on the artists who followed them to Venice during the 20th century.
