Happy Birthday, Mrs. Whistler's Son!

James McNeill Whistler, artist, was born on this day in 1834, in Lowell, Massachusetts. You probably know his most famous, and often parodied work, "Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1" a.k.a. "Whistler's Mother."

The Whistler home in Lowell is now the Whistler House Museum of Art and is open to the public Wednesdays through Saturdays. If you're interested in art and artists, it's worth a visit!
