  1. Lovely post. John Singer Sargent has always been one of my favorite painters. His subjects look almost luminous and colors he used were so rich. I enjoyed the story about the portrait with the two vases. I may have to visit the Museum in Boston to see it for myself!

    • That was my favorite story too, the next funny story is the so called scandal over the sexy black dress. If they only knew what goes on today:) Madonna and Beyonce comes to mind.

  3. There is that element of 3-D about his paintings that you mention. I prefer this style of painting to the more abstract offerings. Thank you for the research there’s so much to learn still … Linda 🙂 Visiting from A – Z Challenge
