James Abbott McNeill Whistler
Salon des Refuses: James Abbott McNeill Whistler: the man with four names and many quirks.
Born on July 10th, 1834, in Lowell, Massachusetts, James Abbott McNeill Whistler was an American born, British-based artist who was known for painting "art for art's sake". His infamous signature found on most of his paintings was an abstract butterfly with a long tail attached to it that he developed in the 1860s out of his interest in Asian art. The butterfly was supposed to symbolize his subtle, intricate and delicate style of painting versus his intensely combative and provocative persona when in public. Whistler's initials 'J.W.' were incorporated into the butterfly in 1869 and gradually evolved over the next thirty years, acquiring antennae, veins and a tail. Sometimes, he would sign himself with a stinging tail, like a scorpion's. Many of James' paintings were titled "arrangements", "harmonies" or "nocturnes", not because he was too lazy to think up new titles, but to emphasize the importance of tonal harmony. In 1855 he moved to Paris where he really started to blossom as a bohemian artist. He studied traditional methods at the atelier of Charles Gabriel Gleyre where he picked up two new principles he would carry with him throughout the rest of his career: first, that line is more important than color and second, that black is the fundamental color of tonal harmony. With his move to France he also quickly became well known for his distinctive appearance and his quick wit, especially with friend and rival Oscar Wilde. He was eccentric and arrogant, a self-promoter and egoist, and had a high pitched voice and a speech full of pauses. A friend of his once said, "In a second you discover that he is not conversing—he is sketching in words, giving impressions in sound and sense to be interpreted by the hearer." In 1861, Mr. Whistler tried out a simple study in white which ended up producing an incredibly controversial portrait of his mistress, Joanna Hiffernan. He called the painting Symphony in White, No. 1: The White Girl. Critics were not impressed and saw it as "an allegory of a new bride's lost innocence." Because she is holding a lily in one hand and standing on a bear skin rug in the painting, viewers took that to be lustful, masculine and inappropriate. By 1863 the painting had stirred up so much controversy that it was accepted into the Salon des Refuses to hang amongst other "reject" artworks, including Manet's infamous "Luncheon on the Grass".

Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, University of Glasgow Whistler’s signature is very helpful for experts to date his paintings and works on paper. By 1869 he had adopted a butterfly signature, evolved from his initials “JW”, to replace his name in order to enhance the decorative quality of his works. He did not want his pictures to be literary and his new monogram helped to distance his images from the written word. The butterfly was the perfect symbol for his art, being beautiful and flighty.

Whistler’s butterfly signature developed over many years. At the time of the Whistler v. Ruskin trial he added a sting to its tail and when he married in 1888 he attached a trefoil for luck.

Marbled White Lucite Purse by Wilardy Handbags by Wilardy Originals are considered the most collectible of all the acrylic purses. This rare lunchbox style purse features stunning marbled Lucite and clear sides. It’s considered a rare design because of its exterior carvings (most bags had interior carvings) and silver-tone hardware.

Vintage Lucite Purses Make Dazzling Accessories
This Wilardy is from my own personal collection of Lucite Purses. It is a rare style as I have never seen another. I have seen these in round but never in a lunchbox style with clear sides. In good condition -- no chips, spider veins, vinegar smell -- BUT does have one tiny hairline along the back seam which you can't see. I thought it was a tiny scratch --- until I held it up to the light. See photo 4 -- and it is located near the seam on the left of the clear lucite with white marble. If mint I would have listed this in the $380 range. Hardware is in great condition for the age and the handle will stay up -- but can drop if shaken. So - meant to be used since not mint. Marking down to reflect that. This is STUNNING and I was just heart broken to find the small crack -- but still a favorite of mine. Wilardy is the most collectible of all the purses -- followed by Llewellyn, Gilli, Rialto and Charles Kahn. It is marbled white lucite and would be wonderful for a wedding. All purses back in the 1950s were very small. This measures even smaller than some of the Wilardy's we have. Just a beautiful piece of art. (you can tell I'm a fan!) Measures only 6 inches across and 4 1/2 inches tall. It narrows down to 2 1/2 inches at the bottom. The exterior sides are not reversed carved -- actually carved on the OUTSIDE as you can see. Button front and hardware are SILVER tone. Most are gold/brass toned that we have. Should be used for something special to remember.
