Singer Sargent

After missing all the celebrity birthdays last week, at least we remembered John Singer Sargent - born January 12,  1856 in Florence, Italy.

“Carnation Lily, Lily Rose” was painted in a garden by the Thames. Two children are lighting up the Chinese lanterns, and in their light and with flowers surrounding, Sargent sees for a moment life itself by accident made idyllic.“
