Brush stroke of a genius

American artist John Singer Sargent  has no equal in his mastery of capturing the blazing sun, hot wind and  cool, soothing shadows of summer in a few confident brush strokes.
 His show of watercolors painted on locations across Europe (over a hundred years ago) feel like they were visited yesterday and allows us to emotionally enter the atmosphere he was able to capture for prosperity. His eye for grand and idealized aesthetics also sets him apart from his contemporaries. Enjoy his vision and fantastic skill with a brush at the Brooklyn Museum this summer.
