American painter

Impressionism' was the name given to a certain form of observation when Monet, not content with using his eyes to see what things were or what they looked like as everybody had done before him, turned his attention to noting what took place on his own retina (as an oculist would test his own vision).More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hate to paint portraits! I hope never to paint another portrait in my life. Portraiture may be all right for a man in his youth, but after forty I believe that manual dexterity deserts one, and, besides, the color-sense is less acute. Youth can better stand the exactions of a personal kind that are inseparable from portraiture. I have had enough of it.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No small dabs of colour - you want plenty of paint to paint with.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't dig beneath the surface for things that don't appear before my own eyes.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
