[m. WHISTLER James Abbot Mc Neil (1834-1903) / There are the Whistlerian and the Sargent’s camps. Full-length portraits, brilliant etchings and lithographs. Fascinated with the influenced by [Japanese] art. Believing in the “correspondences” between the arts, he associated with poets Baudelaire and T. Gautier and with the painter Rossetti. In 1877 he brought a libel suit against John Ruskin, won the case but received minimal damages. Bankrupt, he was forced to leave England and stayed in Venice, painting pastels, watercolors and etchings. Influenced by Corot. / n. PELLIGRINI Carlo (1839-1889) / Caricaturist notable for his gently humorous portraits of prominent Englishmen which he signed with the pseudonym “Ape”. / o. PRENDERGAST Maurice (1859-1924) / Watercolorist who used broad Postimpressionist areas of color. His 1899 “Square of San Marco” has three similar [triumphal] Italian flags on the masts and a crimson Venetian [flag] emblazoned with the winged lion affixed on the far left balcony of the church. Influenced by Vuillard, Cezanne, and pointillism. Mosaic-like effects. / p. KOKOSHKA Oskar (1886-1980) / One of the leading exponents of Expressionism. No hair on the white wrists. Nose to painting, then back off you go from pure paint to a painting. Preoccupation with the character of the subjects. He expressed it through color. Gallery lecture on Monet at Minneapolis Institute of Art. / 3 Melville wrote of Austrian flags flying in 1857: an “[heraldic] display”.]
