Sargent at the Met

August 3, 2015 - 9:55pm
Jenn, Kristi and I went to the Met Mostly to see the Sargent ShowWhich knocked me off my feet.Sargent gets what I struggle with.This meeting between representationand the mark making, abstractfor the love of paint kind of painting.many of the paintings, barely hang togetherlarge areas almost unpainted then the drawing is so fresh and exact that the few cues pull it all brilliantly together.super exciting.and the way he paints hands!the whole show is  humbling in a rare way. I hope to see it again Marie Buloz Pailleron (Madame Édouard Pailleron)
