Description
This handmade silk tie featuring Whistler's Nocturne: Blue and Silver – Chelsea has been made exclusively for Tate to coincide with The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London at Tate Britain. With its cool tones and stylish simplicity, we think it’s the perfect gift for art lovers everywhere.

Nocturne: Blue and Silver – Chelsea 1871 was the first of Whistler’s nocturnes, a series of paintings that convey a sense of the beauty and tranquillity of the River Thames in the evening. Depicting the view from Battersea Bridge looking across the Thames towards Chelsea, the line work and small range of colours in Whistler’s painting reflect the influence of Japanese woodblock artists.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834 – 1903) was an American artist based primarily in the United Kingdom. He disliked sentimentality and moral allusion in painting, and was a leading proponent of ‘art for art's sake’. Finding a parallel between painting and music, Whistler titled many of his paintings 'arrangements', 'harmonies', and 'nocturnes', highlighting the importance of tone in both. Whistler’s theories and friendships in the artistic and literary community gave him a lasting influence on the art world and the broader culture of his time.

Dry clean only.
