Andrew Jackson Kirkpatrick

Andrew Jackson Kirkpatrick (1839-1900) was a wealthy Glasgow merchant  and collector who made a serious mistake in his purchase of a ‘Whistler’ painting – indeed, he made two mistakes buying it and displaying it!  Whistler was not a man to cross – and his fury at finding his name attributed to a ‘sham’ must have caused the unhappy collector much discomfort.  My page tells the whole story.
