and based primarily in the United Kingdom. He was averse to sentimentality and moral allusion in painting, and was a leading proponent of the credo "art for art's sake". His famous signature for his paintings was in the shape of a stylized butterfly possessing a long stinger for a tail.[6] The symbol was apt, for it combined both aspects of his personality—his art was characterized by a subtle delicacy, while his public persona was combative. Finding a parallel between painting and music, Whistler entitled many of his paintings "arrangements", "harmonies", and "nocturnes", emphasizing the primacy of tonal harmony.[7] His most famous painting is Arrangement in Grey and Black No

Clarkson Frederick Stanfield
RA (3 December 1793 – 18 May 1867) was a prominent English marine painter; he is often though inaccurately called William Clarkson Stanfield.Contents1 Early life 2 Scenery 3 Spectacles 4 Mature career 5 References 6 External linksEarly life[edit]The Battle of TrafalgarHe was born at Sunderland, the son of James Field Stanfield (1749–1824) an Irish-born author, actor and former seaman. Clarkson was named after Thomas Clarkson, the slave trade abolitionist, whom his father knew, and this was the only forename he used, although there is reason to believe Frederick was a second one. Stanfield probably inherited artistic talent from his mother, who is said to have been an artist but died in 1801. He was briefly apprenticed to a coach decorator in 1806, but left owing to the drunkenness of his master's wife and joined a South Shields

William Linton (artist)
William Linton (1791–1876) was a British landscape artist.[2]Contents1 Life and artistic work 2 Published works 3 Literature 4 References 5 External linksLife and artistic work[edit] Born in Liverpool, Linton grew up at Lancaster and Cartmel, and went to school at Windermere where later he spent holidays. At the age of sixteen he was placed in a merchant's office. He however did not like the job. For his own pleasure, he started to copy works by Claude Gellee (Lorrain, 1600–1682) and Richard Wilson (1714–1782). Eventually he made art his profession. Linton's later works still bear strong influence of Claude Lorrain's manner with its investigation of natural light effects, of Richard Wilson with his large-scale panoramic compositions, and particularly of Claude-Joseph Vernet (1714–1789) with his inclination to an idealised classical landscape. By 1817 Linton settled in London and started to exhibit at the Royal Academy and British Institution.Castle Campbell. 1820s
