The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit

Wonderful painting by John Singer Sargent because it doesn't depict these four girls, it tells a story. As with other Sargent family portraits, it makes you feel that you know them and can see what will happen as they grow up. Perhaps it is an illusion, but it is a remarkable one.

Hi John, chanced upon our communication on Weston La Barre when I was living in China, circa 2013 and searched the net to find you again. Still using Weston's work to challenge the mystics and have added Lloyd deMause, know his psychohistory?
Good to know you are still blogging and all seems to be well with you and yours.
Email me if interested so we can reconnect and see how we might bring some added value to each other.
I hope you are staying safe and relatively free in this time of the Covid1984 Totalitarian Takeover attempt mass psychosis.
