- Double portrait of Angela and Penelope Dudley Ward—the daughters of the Prince of Wales’s mistress Freda Dudley Ward, 1933 “depicts the two young debutantes at a picnic. Whistler fell in love with Penelope (the sister at right) during the commission and wrote that he was ‘almost dying of her loveliness. It makes the painting very difficult.’ Though the romance never took off, Whistler ensured that he remained forever close to his beloved—the fountain’s satyr mask is a portrait of the artist.”
