Romance by John Singer Sargent 1856-1925

.
Okay, okay, I know that it is not yet spring & I know that I am too old for all of this foolishness, but I believe that romance is possible in the depths of winter. And I also realize that these dresses are surely a little skimpy for today's temperatures, but I am going to post these gentlewomen today anyway. These glorious Sargent ladies, those with imperiously haughty titles & those without, appeal to me today, so you will just have to bear with me.
