ABC Wednesday - S is for Some Artists


ABC Wednesday is a fun meme that has you focusing on a letter a week. This week it S we are looking at.

I was surprised that there were not more S artists that I knew. Soooo - here are 3:


Georges Seurat: (1859-91) a French post-Impressionist painter


Alfred Sisley : (1839-99) a painter born in Paris, of British parents, and was an Impressionist landscape painter



John Singer Sargent: (1856-1925) an American, who painted hundreds of portraits, mainly Paris

Well, they are great ones even if only a few. Interesting because Gina at Pagan Sphinx did her whole post for the S Day on Seurat! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!

What Sylvia said about Seurat.

I've seen Sargent's work in person; liked it.

Familiar (in a limited way) with each of these. I hadn't thought about it, but you are right - there aren't so many S artists! Nice post!

It's always fun to meet a new artist. Thanks for sharing.

I do love that Seurat, wonderful colours. Great S post.

I quite like all of those artists, though I can only take a very little of Seurat because I don't find this type of post-impressionist art restful. I do prefer Sisley for the tranquility.

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week!

Three very different artists - I do like Seurat's work.

I always have to stifle a laugh when I see those bustled women in Seurat's paintings!

I wouldn't mind having one of these on the wall - perhaps NO.2 ?
