The Princess & the Peacocks

We read this amazing story about the artist James McNeill Whistler's famous Peacock Room designed for Frederick R. Leyland, a wealthy shipowner from Liverpool England.  It was a comical story of an artist's antics to create something beautiful to accent his famous painting, La Princesse.  I love doing peacock drawings with my students because they are such beautiful creatures and their colors are gorgeous.

Here is the book we read:
And, here is the link where you can access information about this amazing room:
