John Singer Sargent, “Street in Venice” (1882) – oil on wood. Currently in the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.
Yes, the two men on the right are somewhat creepy. Yes, she’s walking away fast, it seems. I didn’t even notice that stuff at first – I was transfixed by the way light hit the stone.

Okay; NOW I’m done spamming you with Sargent.
