Nude Study of Thomas E. McKeller ~ John Singer Sargent, (1917-20)
Another fabulous use of light, and the warmth here is phenomenal. McKeller is too humanly focused to be truly beatific, but there is that air about him just the same. The somewhat feminine pose is incredibly daring, too, and — guh. Totally need to look this artist up more!
The skin and tone is rendered so well. It’s so warm.
