Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1, known as, (Whistler’s Mother). James McNeill Whistler, 1871. Musée d’Orsay. Paris. Photo by Amber Maitrejean
The frame was designed by Whistler himself. The painting was acquired by the French state in 1891. This painting is an American icon and is one of the most well-known paintings by an American artist outside of the U.S.
*I can’t imagine how this blurry photo of Whistler’s Mother got on my camera, but I’m SO happy it did. :-)
