In honor of the centenary of the artist's death, the Centre for Whistler Studies at the University of Glasgow is releasing an Online Centenary Edition of the correspondence of James McNeill Whistler (bio, images). Part I of the edition, just released, includes about 1,700 fully annotated and cross-referenced letters from 1855-1880, which can be searched by, among other things, subject and the work of art discussed--including the famous "Portrait of the Painter's Mother" (image). By next year, the edition will include over 8,000 letters that together illuminate the life of one of America's first master artists.
