Besides his famous collection of Asian art, Charles Lang Freer was a friend and patron to American artist James MacNeil Whistler (1834-1903). He ended up owning hundreds of Whistler's works, including many drawings and etchings. I love Whistler's drawings and recently spent a happy hour perusing these on the web site of the Freer-Sackler Museum. So, a sample. Above, Garden, Italy, 1879-1880.
