John Singer Sargent...
JANUARY 12, 2007
This completely awesome artist was born today, Jan. 12, 1856. Take a moment and consider how puny and talentless you really are. Nothing personal, it's just that Sargent is a brilliant painter in so many ways. The images below are from here: The John SInger Sargent Virtual Gallery.
