Reading, music, reverie, and studio practice were recurring themes in James McNeill Whistler's work throughout his career. Using Harmony in Green and Rose: The Music Room as a central image, Sweet Silent Thought: Whistler's Interiors examines these themes as depicted within aesthetic spaces. Featuring the artist's works on paper from the late 1850s through the early 1890s, this small-scale exhibition also highlights Whistler's creative development from Realism to Aestheticism
