Throughout the years, Laurie Meyer has created a special collection of works in which she imagines that John Singer Sargent paintings hang in locations special to her. Most recently, she painted Sargent’s El Jaleo into a scene from the Sanctuary Hotel — a painting within a painting.
Says Meyer: “The masterful works of Sargent are the most inspiring. With my ‘Sargent at the Sanctuary’ series (there are several prints in the lobby area), I am able to paint the beautiful interior of the Sanctuary on Kiawah Island and insert whichever Sargent painting I choose. For this painting, I selected the haunting El Jaleo, a true favorite.”
