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]
To work is to pray.More John Sargent quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
