John Singer Sargent..................................

Theodore Roosevelt              John Singer Sargent   
 oil on canvass                                  1903

"I don't dig beneath the surface for things that don't appear before my own eyes."

"A portrait is a picture in which there is just a tiny little something not quite right about the mouth."

"Every time I paint a portrait, I lose a friend."

"Cultivate an ever continuous power of observation. Wherever you are, be always ready to make slight notes of postures, groups and incidents. Store up in the mind... a continuous stream of observations from which to make selections later. Above all things get abroad, see the sunlight and everything that is to be seen."

-All quotes attributed to John Singer Sargent
