James Abbott McNeill Whistler - American- 1834-1903

Nocturne in Black and Gold,  The Falling Rocket. 1875 (Oil on Wood)

This painting is breathtaking...One of my all time favorites...

The artist sold it to Samuel Untermyer in New York in 1892,
and then the Untermyer family sold it in 1940.
It was acquired in 1946 by The Detroit Institute of Arts.
