The first time I ventured to the Brooklyn Museum it was with interior designer Tommy Smythe last spring.  I wonder if I can convince him to return so we can view the new John Singer Sargent Watercolors exhibition that opens Friday and runs through July 28, 2013. This “landmark exhibition” features of 93 works and “unites for the first time the John Singer Sargent watercolors acquired by the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in the early twentieth century.” You might want to make a day of it in Brooklyn and also visit the Brooklyn Botanic Garden during the Cherry Blossom Season which is almost upon us.  The Cherry Blossom Festival is April 27-28, 2013. Are you in Tommy???

    JSS is one of my favourite artists, I love his work. I wish I could come with you to the Brooklyn museum, fingers crossed for a lottery win. Last time I was there was for the fashion exhibition in June 2010 which was so much superior to the one on at the Met at the same time..

    So beautiful. JSS is also one of my favorite artists–these water colors are spectacular. You can almost see him walking through Italy.

    I just love John Singer Sargent. Being a New England girl, I sort of take ownership of him! I just came back from NY… I do believe I will have to take another trip down… Thank you for showing us these wonderful watercolors!

    If you do go, let us know how it is! I’ve already bookmarked it for when it gets to the MFA in Boston. Can’t wait!

    My sweet sister Mary sent me this post. I am so glad she did and I am remiss in visiting here as often as I should. Sargent had a way with paint, Water color – oil and a way of capturing whatever he so so magnificently.
