See the Peacock Room in a whole new light. Visit on the third Thursday of each month from 12-5:30 when the shutters of Whistler’s “harmony in blue and gold” are open. A flood of natural light turns the Peacock Room into a glowing jewel of blue, green, and gold tones. http://www.asia.si.edu/events/allevents.asp?trumbaEmbed=eventid%3D113484020%26view%3Devent%26-childview%3D#/?i=1 F1904.61

The "Princess from the Land of Porcelain" hangs in the Peacock Room. The painting was part of a series of costume pictures Whistler made in the mid-1860s, in which Western models appear in Asian dress, surrounded by Chinese and Japanese objects from the artist's own collections of porcelain, lacquer, fans, and painted screens. http://www.asia.si.edu/collections/singleObject.cfm?ObjectNumber=F1903.91a-b F1903.91a-b
