An American in London: Whistler And The ThamesOver 70 objects relating to the American artist James Whistler go on display at the Dulwich Picture Gallery when it hosts an autumn exhibition of paintings from his first sojourn in the capital which began in 1859. The first major exhibition in London dedicated to this period of Whistler's life, An American in London: Whistler and the Thames showcases paintings, etchings and drawings produced between 1859 and 1903 and includes many of his most famous scenes of London and the Thames. Familiar London landmarks include the River Thames, Chelsea, Battersea Bridge and Wapping, the painting of which Whistler kept secret from rivals such as Courbet for fear that his ideas would be stolen.
