A new exhibition of prints from the Toledo Museum of Art’s collection spotlights the work of iconic American artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903).

Although perhaps more popularly known today as a painter, Whistler was a master of the etched line. Whistler: Influences, Friends and the Not-So-Friendly, on view Feb. 26 through May 30, 2010 in the Museum’s Works on Paper Galleries, provides a comparison of the great American artist with his contemporaries as well as a look at what influenced his work.
