The Woman in White: Joanna Heffernan and James Whistler

Exhibition July 3 − October 10, 2022

National Gallery of Art, Washington invites you to visit the exhibition "The Woman in White: Joanna Hiffernan and James Whistler.".

Three of the most famous portraits of Joanna Heffernan are on display, along with other paintings by Whistler and his contemporaries that are in one way or another related to the person of Heffernan.

Joanna Hiffernan's close professional and personal relationship with the artist James MacNeil Whistler lasted more than two decades. While the intriguing "woman in white" has inspired artists from the Victorian era to the present day, little was known about Heffernan and her influential role in the painter's life and work until now.
