James Abbott McNeill Whistler was an American artist based in the United Kingdom during the mid 19th century. Devoted to the idea of “art for art’s sake,” Whistler became a central figure in the Aesthetic Movement.
Whistler produced numerous prints throughout his career and gained a distinguished reputation as an etcher. He took great care over both the printing of his etchings and the choice of paper. Concerning Whistler as an etcher, Martin Hardie wrote "there are some who set him beside Rembrandt, perhaps above Rembrandt, as the greatest master of all time. Personally, I prefer to regard them [Whistler and Rembrandt] as the Jupiter and Venus, largest and brightest among the planets in the etcher's heaven."
This original etching The Wine Glass was created by Whistler in 1858.
