4th October 2003 - Last Day of Exhibition

Today is your last chance to see Arrangement in Grey and Black No. 1: Portrait of the Painter's Mother at the Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow.

Whistler's famous portrait of his mother has been in Glasgow this summer for the first time in over 50 years. The work was exceptionally lent by the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, in recognition of the Whistler centenary. This masterpiece was a landmark painting in Whistler's career and has become for many a powerful icon of motherhood.

Don't miss out on this final opportunity to see a modern classic!
