Following the “Whistler in Watercolor” exhibition at the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery of Art last year, BWS invited artist and art historian Leigh Culver to reprise and update her presentation on Whistler’s public art and the scandals surrounding his most well-known works. Explaining Whistler’s decision to turn to watercolor, Leigh will introduce us to what Whistler called his “lovely little games” in light of the history of watercolor practices. Peter Ulrich will then demo a painting in the style of Whistler, using the pigments and papers Whistler used. Leigh and Peter, together, will share insights about Whistler’s techniques and the history of the watercolor medium.
