James McNeill Whistler

Thomas Robert Way; 1861-1913,  printer, lithographer and painter. He and his father Thomas Way were extremely important for the revival of lithography in Britain. In 1878, influenced by the Ways, Whistler made his first experiments in lithography. From 1884 Whistler’s lithographs were catalogued by T. R. Way and it was T. R. Way who introduced Whistler to transfer lithography in 1887.
