The American James Abbott McNeill Whistler was averse to sentimentality and moral allusion in painting, establishing himself as a leading proponent of the credo "art for art's sake". Finding a parallel between painting and music, Whistler entitled many of his paintings with musical names, emphasising the primacy of tonal harmony. His innovative and modern approach to art, at times resulting in disastrous consequences, have ultimately secured for him an important place in the history of modern art. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail.
