    "Symphany in White Number 2 (The Little White)" 1864 by Whistler I chose this piece because of the texture in the woman's dress and hair, as if you could almost touch it. This is another example of implied or simulated texture, you see it but its not there. If I were to touch or feel her dress I would imagine it has the texture of being furry or maybe even somewhat rough, depending on the fabric used.

    This early Victorian piece of art is called the little white girl. The Symphony in White No 2: The Little White Girl was painted by James Abbott McNeill Whistler in 1864. It shows a woman in white standing at a fireplace mantle gazing into a mirror. It is believed that the female is actually Joanna Heffernan, the artist mistress.

    James McNeill Whistler's "The Little White Girl". Lots of Japanese in the detail.

James Abbot Whistlers Symphony in White is another example of the natural simplicity of the Pre-Raphaelite style. The composition of the piece also reflects the slow growth of Aesthetic ideals among the PRB. While critics of the age regarded the painting as a modern version of the Virgin Mary or a comment on the loss of innocence, Whistler himself stated simply that it was only a woman dressed in white standing in front of a white background (Monet).
