One of my all-time favorite paintings, I have no idea why....Today’s #FridayFavorite, Venetian Interior by John Singer Sargent, was suggested by Meg Scanlon, our Manager of School Student Programs: “During this time of restricted travel, I miss my mother, and John Singer Sargent is one of her favorite artists.”

Another woman can be seen sitting in the background on a bench against a wall and a group of women are sitting near a doorway leading to a porch or entrance where another woman is standing.
