Whistler Prints in the Fitzwilliam Museum

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

This online exhibition forms a survey of the Fitzwilliam Museum's collection of etchings, drypoints and lithographs by the American artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834–1903). All the works are original prints by Whistler except where stated.

When the prints were displayed at the Fitzwilliam in 2007–8, the exhibition was split into two parts. This online version went live to coincide with the second exhibition, 'Palaces in the Night: The urban landscape in Whistler's prints' (23 September 2008–18 January 2009).
