The commemorative medal's obverse features a face-only image of James McNeill Whistler, an American artist. His eyes look to his proper right as a wave of water encircles his head. A butterfly [?] is featured at the medal's bottom. The reverse depicts an image of a hand applying a paintbrush to a canvas where an image of a woman can be seen. Underneath the canvas, the images of a man and three women in varying positions are pictured.
