Doris Sloan Memorial Lecture: "Exotic, Egregious, Decaying, or Dead": Everyday Chelsea in the Work of Whistler

Dr. Lee Glazer's lecture will consider Whistler's approach to depicting architecture in his prints, beginning with his etchings of Venice and will focus particularly on the artist's 1880s images of Chelsea, exploring the social realities and aesthetic transformation of a Victorian neighborhood in transition. She will also reflect on the place of these motifs in the collecting habits of UMMA benefactor Margaret Watson Parker. Dr. Glazer is Associate Curator of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution's Freer Gallery of Art and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in Washington, DC, home of one of the foremost Whistler collections in the world. She is the editor of the recent volume James McNeill Whistler in Context: Essays from the Whistler Centenary Symposium.
