Lines and Colors

If you follow just one art blog, make it Lines and Colors. Charley Parker is an art critic and a tireless blogger, who examines a featured artist almost daily. In truth, he publishes so much material that it is hard to stay current. In particular, I enjoyed this recent piece on John Singer Sargent, who like many artists, found himself somewhat marginalized due to timing and the ‘whims’ of the art establishment. Sargent’s greatest works were born as the art world shifted toward modernism and abstraction. He is widely regarded as a great painter, but less celebrated than his contemporaries who pioneered the new vogue. The detail view of the following painting illustrates Sargent’s skill much better than words.
