|The Fountain, Villa Torlonia|
Frascati, Italy (detail) 1907
Spotted another one of these prints on California north of Devon. ArtEverywhereUS.org put prints up all over the country during the month of August. Billboards, telephone kiosks, subways, buses, bus stops and stairs are examples of where these masterworks have been plastered.
Above is number 18 out of the 58 selected for display. This particular work is housed at the Art Institute of Chicago which has a decent Sargent collection.
This is a fantastic addition to bus stops. Instead of the usual banal bland advertising, art! Something like this should be sponsored year round. Projects like this can inspire young minds to create their own masterpiece and to visit the Art Institute.
