Painter, illustrator, theatrical designer and muralist, a master of pastiche and trompe-l'oeil. Whistler's elegant baroque designs and witty murals enlivened many interiors including the Tate Gallery Refreshment Room (1926-7) and Plas Newydd, Isle of Anglesey (1936-8). He was killed while on active service during the Second World War.
