    The moment I saw this painting I loved it. Then, I saw it was a John Singer Sargeant. Art, ‘live’, is like nothing else. I sat in front of this artist’s work at the MFA in Boston. All the adjectives in the world would not do it justice. Thank you for this post!

    Apologies. Sargent is what my fingers should have typed.
