Copying a Master's work was the way students learned at some of the famous ateliers like Ecole des Beaux Artes. That link leads to a site about John Singer Sargent which is loaded with links to everything Sargent. Despite a good start here the devil was in the details as they say. There was a bit of a tilt to this when I photographed it so it looks a tad crooked on the left. It's not. This is my first fake. I kinda like it.
