In 2006, The Correspondence of James McNeill Whistler was launched online and in 2012 a new catalogue raisonné of Whistler’s etchings was launched. The University is currently collaborating with international partners on an exhibition exploring Whistler’s relationship with the Thames and Battersea Bridge, and on a major Whistler retrospective to travel to Japan (2014–2015).
