John Singer Sargent

When you know you’re from another time…and paintings like this catch your attention. Most of the time nature is more fascinating that man made things.

Men are all imperfect but art elevates suffering to something else, something worth looking, something that captivates. Feelings, emotions, and perceptions that are in one picture, that hopefully lasts. Sometimes that’s all we can hope for. Artists are never admired in their own time or in their own country…it’s a good thing that canvas endures times and passes from hand to hand and travels from country to country. Some artist never find a way out. But the idea behind the person is impressed in the work even unconsciously to those who look at it.
