Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Falling Rocket

1875: Detroit Institute of Arts

The series of Nocturnes is Whistler's most distinctive contribution to art. It is a form of painting in which Whistler seems most abstract and apart from the tendencies of either French or English art, though the atmospheric effect is especially associated with the Thames at Chelsea.
