”To live with Sargent’s water-colours is to live with sunshine captured and held, with the luster of a bright and legible world, ‘the refluent shade’ and ‘the Ambient ardours of the noon.’”
This has to be one of my favorite water-colours by Sargent.
( Mind you this is one of 2,000 paintings.)
I never tire his use of color, shadow and the looseness of brush.
I love the way this garden statue has been captured and cascade of flowers
trailing down. Did you ever think a statue could be treated like a portrait?
