About

Victoria Club. 1879 and 1887. Lithograph. Way catalog 11 state ii; Levy catalog 22; Tedeschi, Stratis and Spink catalog number 15 state ii. 8 x 5 3/8 (sheet 16 5/8 x 12 1/16). A rich impression printed on grayish ivory proofing paper mounted on ivory plate paper. Edition of 100 printed by Way and is as published in the portfolio, Notes 1887-88. Monogrammed with the butterfly in the stone. Victoria Club is a view from Way's printing offices on Wellington Street. The Victoria Club, located at 19 Wellington Street, was a "social and sporting club" connected primarily with horse racing. One of the most significant figures in American art and a forerunner of the Post-Impressionist movement, James Whistler is celebrated for his innovative painting style and eccentric personality. He was bold and self-assured, and quickly developed a reputation for his verbal and legal retaliations against art critics, dealers, and artists who insulted his work. His paintings, etchings, lithographs and pastels epitomize the modern penchant for creating "art for art's sake," an axiom celebrated by Whistler and others in the Aesthetic movement. They also represent one of the earliest shifts from traditional representational art to abstraction that is at the heart of much of modern art.
