Symphony in White (1865) by James Whistler

Whistler painted his lover Joanna Hiffernan. This painting shows her beautiful profile while reflected in the mirror.

The white of the dress is the dominant color in this painting.

Joanna has been Whistler’s lover for seven years, then she met his friend, the artist Courbet and became his lover.

“Just like music is the poetry of sound, painting is the poetry of sight, and this has nothing to do with a harmony of sound or color”

James Abbot Whistler
