Whistler's guiding principle was “art for art’s sake” meaning that the artist should only work to please himself. Whistler’s tonally disciplined palette distinguishes his painting from all other artists and provides his work with sophistication and elegance. He was a leader in the Aesthetic Movement and frequently wrote and lectured about his ideas on art and philosophy. Common themes were landscapes and portraits.
