One of the most influential late 19th century American painters and etchers, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, often employed a variety of styles, including Impressionism and Art Nouveau.
Drawn on thin japan paper, Weary is a depiction of Whistler’s companion in the 1860s, Jo Hiffernan. According to The Met, it is likely due to the influence of Rembrandt that Whistler felt comfortable leaving the second half of the drawing almost bare with the exception of a few fine lines.
