Peacock Room reimagined in ruins at Washington museum

Artist Darren Waterston talks about his immersive interior installation, "Filthy Lucre," a reinterpretation of James McNeill Whistler's Peacock Room. An over-the-top reimagination of 19th century American-born artist James Whistler's iconic Peacock Room is going on display in the Washington museum that is home to the original. "Filthy Lucre" is painter Darren Waterston's take on the artist's tortured relationship with his patron, shipping tycoon Frederick Leyland, who commissioned him in 1876 to create the Peacock Room in his London home to show off his Chinese porcelain collection. "There is a harshness to this, and an ugliness to this as well, and I'm not sure how he would respond to that," he told AFP at the Smithsonian's Freer-Sackler museum of Asian art. The Peacock Room, which doubled as Leyland's dining room, was acquired from his heirs in 1904 by American industrialist Charles Lang Freer, who had its entire contents packed up in crates, shipped across the Atlantic and then reassembled in his Detroit home.
