During a few hours before a meeting today I ducked into the National Gallery of Art in Washington D. C..  Standing in front of this painting I was reminded of how much I liked the work of John Singer Sargent.  The satin of her clothing, painted in whites and yellows, practically shimmered on the wall in front of me.  Click to really get the picture.  The model was his niece.
