...who thinks Sargent's watercolours are where the masterpieces really are?
I sit and repeatedly go through Sargent's Venice
, and it's the watercolours that I end up staring at, not the oils. I think it's perhaps the personality they have. His oils are, of course, magnificent, but it's in the watercolours that he seems to really show himself. They're just... spectacular. The light! The reflections! How did you do that, John? How?!?!
