South Kensington Tube | Map
Guided by Matthew
The flamboyant, combative and tirelessly innovative American artist J M Whistler lived in London for most of his professional life. This walk tours his stamping ground of Kensington and Chelsea. It includes – these are just a few of the walk's brushstrokes – the views of the Thames that inspired his Nocturnes, the house where he painted his famous portrait of his mother, and the mansion in which he created the renowned 'Peacock Room' – sparking off his most bitter feud. The walk is guided by artist and art historian Matthew.
THE JAMES MCNEILL WHISTLER WALK – THE PRACTICALS
The J M Whistler walk takes place at 11 am on Monday, August 26. Meet Matthew just beyond the ticket barrier of South KensingtonTube.
