This project explores the creative processes of the American-born artist, James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903), as an etcher and printer. The Whistler Etchings Project is based in the University of Glasgow. The project was originally based on three major collections: the artist's estate in the University of Glasgow, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Freer Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. It has been extended to cover prints and the print market, and etchings in public and important private collections. It completes the series of catalogues raisonnés of Whistler's oeuvre published under the auspices of the University of Glasgow and the Art Institute of Chicago. It will be maintained and extended by the Whistler Etching Project (WEP) and the University of Glasgow.
