Architectural Sketches

Spanish Fountain (1912)

John Singer Sargent is mainly known for his portraiture, but he also produced some beautiful architectural sketches and drawings as well. I suppose he had an eye for beauty wherever he could find it, similar to many of his contemporaries! University in Genoa (1908)
Venice La Dogana (1906-1911)
Escutcheon of Charles V of Spain (1912)
The Three Graces (1921) - bas-relief

You can enjoy the entire catalog of his work online at the John Singer Sargent Virtual Library!
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!!
