Paintings I love: John Singer Sargent’s Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose

This nearly brought me to tears today. Maybe because I’ve got two young daughters, but also because of the way Sargent has captured the light inside the lanterns and on the girls’ faces. It’s an absolutely magical scene.

  1. Sargent is one of my favorites, too, & this is one of his most beautiful paintings–among so many. He was excellent. Have you ever read what he (Sargent) called this painting? “Darnation, Silly, Silly Pose”. 🙂
