Reflection



Symphony in White No.2: Little White Girl by James Abbot McNeill Whistler, Tate Gallery, London.

The Japanese theme in Whistler's art can be seen in the decorations around the figure of the woman. Around the mid 19th century Japanese influences began to appear in Europe and became quite fashionable.

It appears to me that her face looks different in the mirror?
What I find attractive in this relaxed setting, is her white dress surrounded by color!
