I love this one too…http://biblioklept.org/2012/09/20/robert-louis-stevenson-and-his-wife-john-singer-sargent/
This is SUCH a great painting, as well as the other one mentioned above. What a time to have lived in, so many fascinating people that JSS hung out with — Henry James, Oscar Wilde, etc. And today is Sargent’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Scamps – at 157 years of age, you don’t look a day over thirty! … if you’re interested in a novel about John Singer Sargent, see my blog at http://www.portraitsofanartist.blogspot.com – it’s coming out at the end of this month!
I actually find this painting really haunting, which possibly shows what a great piece of art it actually is.
