I was inspired to try to repeat the portrait of a great artist J. A. M. Whistler Symphony in White No. 1. I was amazed at the comparison of the Art with the music and I wanted to compare the photography with the music.
In 1862, renowned artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler painted Symphony in White, No. 1: The White Girl, an oil on canvas portrait of a woman dressed entirely in white against a backdrop of heavy white drapes. Whistler made use of various tones of white to suggest pureness or virginity.
