Nocturne in Black and Gold – The Falling Rocket c. is most famously known as the inception of the lawsuit between Whistler and the art critic John was not aware of the effort and theory that had gone into Nocturne in Black and Gold when he accused The Falling Rocket of being a public insult.

He had denounced Whistler’s art as “absolute rubbish.”. The book was so controversial that at the time of his death, Whistler was apparently better known for his rivalries than his art.

The Whistler v. Ruskin trial represented a pivotal turning point for what it meant to be a critic and an artist. InJohn Ruskin accused James Whistler of 'flinging a pot of paint in the public's face'.

Whistler’s painting had subverted the idea that art should have some moral or didactic purpose. James McNeill Whistler was a great artist. His painting popularly known as Whistler’s Mother () is probably second to Mona Lisa as the most recognized painted woman.
