Whistler: Symphony in White, 22" Canvas Print, Black Frame

About the Artist

James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903) was inspired by many sources, including the avant garde, realism, the 17th-century Dutch and Spanish schools, the Pre-Raphaelites, and Orientalism. Participating in the artistic ferment of Paris and London in the late 19th century, he developed his own distinctive and highly influential style, arriving at a version of post-impressionism in the mid-1860s, a time when most of his contemporaries in the avant-garde were still exploring realism and impressionism.

This print on canvas reproduction of James McNeill Whistler's Symphony in White, No. 1: The White Girl (1862) in a black frame was specially produced using the highest quality digital imaging.


Whistler used variations of white pigment to create interesting spatial and formal relationships. By limiting his palette, minimizing tonal contrast, and sharply skewing the perspective, he flattened forms and emphasized their abstract patterns. This dramatic compositional approach reflects the influence of Japanese prints, which were becoming well known in Paris as international trade increased.
