James McNeill Whistler (July 1834-1903), an American artist, spent most of his life in Victorian London. Throughout the 1860s and 1870s, Whistler was drawn to the bustling and rapidly changing urban neighbourhood surrounding Battersea Bridge – and, of course, to the River Thames that meanders through in the heart of London.
