Monet on the Run – 43. Whistlered?
James McNeill Whistler may very well have frequented the circle of refugee French artists in London. After all, his name figured on Daubigny’s list with London contacts. Although there’s no hard evidence that he met Monet, it is tempting to think that they did or that Monet at least saw one or two of Whistler’s Nocturnes, on which he was working while he was in London. Perhaps Monet remembered them, when he painted his famous ‘Impression. Sunrise’, two years later.
Just compare.
