The White Owl (1856)
by William James Webbe
English (1830-1904)

The White Owl is a captivating piece that exemplifies the artist's meticulous attention to detail and his importance within the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Painted in 1856, the artwork features a solitary white owl resting on its perch within a belfry, a setting that evokes a sense of solitude and contemplation. The owls feathers are rendered with exquisite detail, showcasing Webbe's skill in capturing the texture and softness that is characteristic of an owl's plumage.  

The painting's title, accompanied by the quote "alone and warming his five wits, the white owl in his belfry sits" further emphasizes the owl's isolation and introspective mood. The artwork stands out not only for its technical prowess but also for its ability to convey a deeper narrative through the simple yet profound subject of a white owl in quietude.
