James Abbott McNeill Whistler. Harmony in Green and Rose: The Music Room.
Harmony in Green and Rose: The Music Room. The picture was first called The Morning Call. The scene is set in the music room of the home of Whistlerís half-sister Deborah and her husband Francis Seymour Haden. It shows Deborahís image, reflected in the mirror to the left, her daughter Annie, and, standing in riding dress, Isabella Boott, a niece of Kirk Boott, the founder of Lowell, Massachusetts, who had first invited Whistlerís father to Lowell in 1834. Isabellaís eldest sister had married Hadenís younger brother. Whistlerís mother gave the picture to her daughter-in-law, Julia, the wife of Whistlerís half-brother George
