Joanna Hiffernan’s relationship with Whistler ran deeper than artist and muse. In this rich exhibition we explore her life and role as a friend, model, lover and collaborator.
Many of James McNeill Whistler’s works feature the red-haired figure of Joanna Hiffernan. Her close professional and personal relationship with the artist lasted for two decades, yet little about her role or influence in his life has been explored – until now.
This exhibition brings together portraits of Hiffernan, ranging from innovative paintings, prints and drawings that challenged cultural norms and established Whistler’s reputation as one of the most influential artists of the late 19th century.
We also explore works by Gustave Courbet, who painted Hiffernan when he and Whistler worked together in Normandy, and conclude with paintings by Millais, Klimt and more who were inspired by Whistler’s Symphony in White.
