James McNeill Whistler's 1859 etching "Black Lion Wharf" is the type of gritty work that drew wildly mixed critical reviews at the time. It's one of two Whistler drawings in the Heckscher Museum of Art's new exhibit, "Rabble-Rousers: Art, Dissent and Social Criticism," opening Dec. 7, 2013, in Huntington.(Credit: Heckscher Museum of Art)
