James McNeill Whistler was one of the 19th century's most distinguished painters, and he was a lover of correspondence. In 2003, a number of projects were held to mark the centenary of his death, and this website represents one facet of those works. The online database of Whistler's correspondence was made possible by the British Academy Committee on Academy Research Projects, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Getty Grant Program, and a number of other partners. First-time visitors should click on the "correspondence" link to learn more about the Whistler correspondence collection at the University of Glasgow, the editorial practices of this edition, relevant abbreviations, and staff details. Visitors can roam through this immense collection of Whistler's letters by person, subject, works of art, and places. For lovers of art and compelling writing, this site is one that is worth bookmarking for return visits.
