Aestheticism visuals – Swinburne


Dear Aesthetes,

The artworks that accompany this week’s texts are the Hellenistic statue of Hermpahrodite in the Louvre and Whistler’s ‘The Little White Girl: Symphony in White No.2’ (1864).

Images of both of these can be found in an archive post from last year – click on Aestheticism (under Categories in the right-hand toolbar) and scroll down until you find the Swinburne entry.

I look forward to hearing what you make of Algie (or Algae, as the Modernists liked to call him),
