Margaret F. MacDonald, exhibition curator and professor of art history at the School of Culture and Creative Arts, University of Glasgow
The Woman in White explores the life of Joanna Hiffernan and her influential role in artist James McNeil Whistler’s life and work. This exhibition represents the first concerted effort to better account for what is hidden in plain sight in so many of Whistler’s celebrated early works: Hiffernan herself.
Join us on July 3, 2022, for the exhibition opening and introductory lecture on its major themes with curator Margaret F. MacDonald. Professor MacDonald is a leading authority on James McNeill Whistler and has written and co-written numerous publications on the artist including James McNeill Whistler: Drawings, Pastels and Watercolours: A Catalogue Raisonné (1995), Palaces in the Night: Whistler in Venice (2001), and The Woman in White: Joanna Hiffernan and James McNeill Whistler (2020).
