For those who love the paintings of John Singer Sargent, you will want to investigate a painter you may not know: Joseph Sorolla

The Spanish artist knew and admired Sargent and his work often bears a strong similarity to that great American painter.

Sorolla's use of light...

...on these three is impressive. And look at the sizes: huge, especially the third, my favorite.
