Description: Through Duveneck, Blum met James McNeill Whistler, who introduced him to the pastel medium, and together in the 1880s, they became associated with the Society of Painters of Pastel, for which Blum served as President and which was an organization that helped promote the acceptance of Impressionism in America. Blum and Whistler became some of the most highly regarded pastelists of that period.
