A: The word “Isolated”means to be far away from people etc.

But you have asked a different question : “ isolated ON A WHITE BACKGROUND”

Those other words “ on a white background “ are important.

It may be they are talking about a picture or drawing that IS ON A WHITE BACKGROUND.

Like a drawing of say a small dog in the corner of a large piece of white paper.

That would a drawing ON a White Background.

So I think they may be talking about a visual or graphic design on a white piece of paper, or a white computer screen.

If the drawing is small compared to the white space or background

it creates the image of

something all alone and off by itself , which is equal to the experience of being isolated or alone.

Hope that makes sense to you.
