The Sense of Sight

(click to enlarge)
Anna Louise Swynnerton
(English, 1844-1933)
The Sense of Sight, 1895

This painting reminds me just how amazing the sense of sight is!


  1. Isn't it amazing how women painters were able to portray more sensitivity through their work? There's always a sense of delicateness that soars through somehow.

    And about your obsession with Renoir? Well, I must say it's nice to find a kindred spirit... I am a huge devoted fan of his, and for some reason have not yet grown tired of his paintings! (^_^)

  2. Definitely!

    Perhaps I'm not tired of his paintings . . . it might just be that they remind me of a time when I was an obnoxious 10-year-old. ;) But I picked a few of my old favorites and will be posting them soon!
