Not That There is Anything Wrong with That...
Two Girls Fishing, 1912 by John Singer Sargent, Cinncinati Art Museum.
Sargent frequently choses women as subjects and although he painted many on commission, he also painted them when the work he was doing was for himself. He seems to empower them through the beauty he portrays them with. His personal interests in women are unclear and most of the time it is just said that he was a very private person and left at that.
