Harmony

James Abbott McNeill Whistler is hugely famous for his Arrangement in Grey and Black (his mom), but I much prefer his Harmony in Pink and Grey (Lady Meux).

Whistler — Harmony in Pink and Grey (detail) — 1881-82

I like the expression in her face, which comes across in large scale, but is lost in the thumbnail version (at least on my laptop screen!) Whistler captures a tremulous quality, and an inner strength. The color palette is a perfect echo of that, and the shine and matte of her clothing.

Very, very nice. Some of the strokes remind me of things Jeff Jones would do.
