Wow, you are so right, SO Sargent!
yes, JSS-is still alive and well in the world today.
The photo and styling of Farrah Fawcett are stunning. I assume you are referring to John Singer Sargent, and the stylist/photographer seems to have had that wonderful artist as inspiration for this shoot.Best...Victoria
Yes, JSS of course. I am always "seeing" derivations of the works of the greats out and about and immediately gravitate to them. We get to know our design roots about beauty and design that way. pgt
love your blog, Little Augery. let me introduce you to my line of classical laminated plcemats, Hp Designs, which have their roots in English lacquer cork back mats, and rendered in a practical laminated form, interpreted in current colors and designs. www.hpdesigns.net Sandra McFarland
I love the placemats, I need to return and look at leisure! pgt

Here, her beauty takes on the era. Amusing that most of our associations with this woman are of wispy winged hair and Charlie's Angels. She was a gifted actress and a classic beauty as this portrait shows us. pgt
Gaye...have you the book - PORTRAITS by DAVID SEIDNER? I know you'll find Sargent dwelling within its pages and vignettes...
Yes, I have that book and it is amongst one of the most cherished-and that covers many a book. It is truly a masterpiece. He is one whose work is so distinctive it can be instantly spotted-gone too soon, but what a wealth of work he left. pgt
