Whistler Circles explores the etchings of James McNeill Whistler and his followers, showcasing 19th- and early 20th-century works from the Etching Revival. Ranging from touristic scenes of pastoral landscapes and famous monuments to avant-garde aesthetic works nearing abstraction, this exhibition presents scenes of rural and urban European life during a time of transformation.
