James Abbott McNeil Whistler rejected the conventions of his era and maintained that ideas for painting are here to cause a special mood or atmosphere inside a person, and that creating a compositional harmony comes only after that. He often compared his paintings to visual music and gave them names such as ”symphony” or ”nocturne”.
