Famous quotes containing the word whistler:

    You should not say it is not good. You should say you do not like it; and then, you know, you’re perfectly safe.
    —James Mcneill Whistler (1834–1903)

    Ruskin’s counsel: The labour of two days ... is that for which you ask two hundred guineas?
    Whistler: No: I ask it for the knowledge of a lifetime.
    —James Mcneill Whistler (1834–1903)

    To say of a picture, as is often said in its praise, that it shows great and earnest labour, is to say that it is incomplete and unfit for view.
    —James Mcneill Whistler (1834–1903)
