This slim and elegant journal features Harmony in Pink and Grey: Portrait of Lady Meux, by James McNeill Whistler. The subject of this painting is Susan Langdon (1852–1910), a woman of humble origins and strong character who spent a period of time on the stage before her marriage to the brewer and baronet Henry Bruce Meux. Her theatrical flair is evident in this portrait, one of three Whistler created for her. She is shown in an afternoon dress that was at the height of fashion when the portrait was made.
