Blog Post 5 Peacock Room

Peacock Room by James McNeill Whistley. 1876-77

The peacock room was originally a dining room in a townhouse in London. It is now a room with 250 ceramic pieces. I enjoy the way the blue and the gold complement each other in this painting. The art is very detailed and in the back there is a focal point of the painting. The focal point is actually another painting by James McNeill Whistler called Rose and Silver: The Princess from the Land of Porcelain. He used architecture and fine arts inspired by japanese interiors.
