(20) Sargeant
6" x 8", oil
private collection
Two of my favorite things: tea and art books. Of all John Singer Sargeant's beautiful paintings, this is my favorite. It is called "Capri" and his model, Rosina Ferrara, was dancing the dance of the tarantella on the roof of the hotel. I love her spirit and spontaneity, and I suspect the artist did as well.
