Sargent Watercolors at MFA Boston

The MFA in Boston is having a show of a fantastic number of Sargent's Watercolors.
This was the entry sign along side a large slide show featuring a musical piece titled Water Games that inspired Sargent by French composer Maurice Ravel.
The pieces were arranged by subject mater and there were several rooms.
I will post the images in the order I went threw the rooms.



Close ups from the first piece. 






This is a close up of the Bedouin Camp

 On the right is a current day version of what the site Sargent painted looks like.

I recommend the show to anyone who can make it to Boston!

Gorgeous. I couldn't believe how beautiful his painting of a sidewalk was when I saw it in DC this summer. Green with envy:)
