Whistler and Roussel: Linked Visions is an exhibition catalogue that accompanies a Art Institute show by the same title. The volume explores the artistic collaboration between James McNeill Whistler and Theodore Roussel. The catalogue offers a new perspective on the artists, their circle, and resulting innovations in nineteenth-century art. The catalogue features an in-depth essay by scholar Meg Hausberg and an introduction by Victoria Sancho-Lobis, Prince Trust Associate Curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute, zoomable high-resolution images of many of the works, and an illustrated checklist of the 214 works in the exhibition.
