James Abbott McNeill Whistler
19th-20th century
(Lowell (Massachusetts), 1834 - 1903, London)

The potential delicacy of lithotints was unknown before Whistler’s experimentation with the medium. By suspending grease in a wash, he achieved the most ethereal images. His printer, Thomas Way, recognized Whistler’s potential, and encouraged the artist to make lithographs, even providing him with wheelbarrows to carry the stones and men to deliver them. Whistler’s example persuaded many artists to take up lithography in the 1890’s and exerted a primary influence upon the subsequent development of the medium in England and the United States.
