Eye Candy for Today: Whistler etching

he Traghetto No. 2, etching by James McNeill Whistler
The Traghetto No. 2, James McNeill Whistler

Etching and drypoint; eighth state of nine, roughly 9×12 inches (23x30cm). In the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Like Rembrandt, Whistler never fails to amaze me with how casual he makes his drawing process look in his etchings, and yet how powerful and subtle is the finished print.
