The Breakfast Table by John Singer Sargent

28 Sep

The Breakfast Table by John Singer Sargent is in complete contrast to the earlier painting by Van Gogh of The Potato Eaters shown a few posts ago.Sargent’s painting was painted in 1884 and Van Gogh’s in 1885.
One reeks of poverty and serfdom whilst the other is more sadate and there is a peacefullness about it.
