Paintings That Inspire

When I was done teaching the workshop at the Grand Central Academy in New York I went to the Met with a group of painters to see some of the newly displayed paintings in the 19th and 20th century galleries. A few paintings I'd never seen were a Sorolla landscape and portraits by Zorn and Repin.

A landscape by the master of color Joaquin Sorolla.

Master of edges, Anders Zorn (detail) Portrait of Mrs. Walter Rathbone Bacon

Ilya Repin (the master of pretty much everything) Portrait of the Russian writer Vsevolod Garshin

Artist David Kassan and friends outside of the Met.
