Landscapes Through Time With David Dunlop

James Abbott Mcneill Whistler's Venetian Etchings

Season 2, Episode 4 of 8

David travels to beautiful Venetian locations that inspired provocative, iconoclastic artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) during his transformative trip in 1879-1880. Whistler's fame from the etchings that he created in the backstreets of Venice helped rehabilitate his artistic reputation after a disastrous libel trial with noted art critic John Ruskin. David demonstrates a dry point on a copper plate alongside a canal, the Rio de San Barnaba, located near Whistler's first studio at the Ca' Rezzonico, demonstrating Whistler's brilliance in graphic design.
