An American in London: Whistler and the Thames. Dulwich Picture Gallery.

Although not a massive fan of Whistler i'm really glad I got to this show. Visiting the day before it closed was unwise as I had to que for an hour - however this gave me a chance to really look at the impressive collection in the Dulwich Picture Gallery. I was particularly taken by portraits by Murilo and a Tudor painting of The Judd Marriage (British School) As for the Whistlers how - I really liked his small detailed sketches of the Thames, most of them are postcard size, intimate and atmospheric. There were some really interesting photographs showing how the Thames looked just over100 years ago - its fascinating to see what has changed.
