Two Caras


Cara graduated from college recently with interests in writing, poetry and art history.
She works at the New Britain Museum of American Art, where this 1888 portrait
by  John Singer Sargent hangs.  The name of the painting?
"Miss Cara Burch."

The observant among you will note the frilled shoulders on both Caras' blouses.

There's a very strong resemblance here Jack and not just the names..

How long did it take you to pick the similar shoulders up? You do enjoy yourself at museums. You do know there are paintings there, right?

The similarities are amazing, Jack!

Kate said...

How clever of you to put the two together! I hope that Cara finds a good job in a fine museum

Two excellent portraits!

Sharon Anck said...

The similarities are amazing. Are you sure Cara isn't a bit of a time traveler?

RedPat said...

I imagine you dragged Cara over to that paining for this shot, Jack! Good for you - it is great.

Like the others, I find the similarities amazing indeed!! Like Sharon, I wonder if Cara isn't a time traveler!! Terrific capture for the day as always, Jack!! Have a great new week!

Well composed, Jack!

My need for careful observation decreases with coaching. Sargent's Cara has a sour mouth and hard glare. I wonder if the painter was trying to say something.

I really like this one.
