I love Sargent's work. I regularly get my drawing students to copy his sketches.

Sargent. What a master.

Interesting trying to determine the items in the suitcase. I think I see a boot, but some of the other details look like a small French Easel and perhaps a small back pack, maybe binoculars. I wonder if Sargent traveled with a suitcase full of his plein air painting gear, stopping at hotels here and there when on the move, traveling light. The green shutters look like Italy. I suppose he did, like Matisse and lots of others - a sort of Painter's Progress through his domains.

What a perfect gem.
