Influence: John Singer Sargent (1856-1925)

"I have met this last week a young Mr.Sargent...one of the most talented fellows I have ever come across; his drawings are like the old masters, and his colour is equally fine...He speaks as well in French, German, Italian as does in English, has a fine ear for music, etc. Such men wake one up, and, as his principles are equal to his talents, I hope to have his friendship."

- Julian Alden Weir

Are you familiar with Sargent's works? Who is your inspiration/influence?

That work is so powerful and emotive. That second piece in particular really speaks to me. Thank you so much for sharing these incredible pieces of art. Definitely the inspiration I needed today!

He's one of my favorites as well.chingu. The Metropolitan Museum of Art which is home to Sargent's famous portrait of Madame X (which I always make sure to stop and view whenever I go - it is exquisite!) hosted a special exhibition of his personal works a few years ago which gave me a whole new appreciation for his work.

Very nice. I really like the last image. Thanks for sharing.
I can't say I am familiar but I love the introduction. I also love the quote by Julian Alden Weir. It makes you think, how many individuals these days are praised or famed for such things? Or should I say artists in general. It's such a shame artists are not given the support or limelight as they should. Or perhaps like they had been given in the past.
