Whistler paintings are typically oil on canvas as was common for this period. Whistler's style is generally referred to as Tonalism, of which he was the founder. This movement generally concerns a style of landscape painting but Whistler also produced paintings of other topics, as seen with the Artist's Mother above which is a portrait painting.

The success of Whistler is shown, in part, by the impressive list of creative Americans whom are believed to have taken in elements of his style in their own, having following on afterwards. These include the other tonalists who joined the art movement which he himself set up as well as the American impressionists plus notable painters William Merritt Chase and John Singer Sargent.

Self Portrait is an interesting painting which allows us to visually see the artists through his own eyes. Self portraits have always been highly valuable to art historians who can use them as a way of learning more about the artist himself and his own personal mood at the time that each one was produced. Van Gogh was best known for this as he had a highly turbulent character and also created many self portraits right across his career.

The tonalism style of Whistler which bears similarities to the French Barbizon style as well as many of the works of British Romanticist painter, JMW Turner, and this approach has proven extremely popular in recent years with it's emotional skies proving to be to many people's taste. Sadly for Whistler the tonalists were forgotten about amidst the rise of the impressionists, but many still are well aware of the career of this skilled American painter.

Nocturne In Black and Gold can be seen above and is a charming landscape painting which serves well to best sum up the frequent style of this artist. Whistler spent a lot of his time living in the UK and as such many of his landscapes were of locations around the south of England, including London and Haystings, to name just two.

There were several Nocturnes in the major works of Whistler and these best show off his use of tonalism where mood and shadow played exaggerated roles with each painting. JMW Turner's Fighting Temeraire is another good example of where slighly blurred characteristics to a landscape scene can help a viewer focus on the wonderful array of colour that has less distraction from trying to define clear objects.
