    I can definitely relate to a man who apparently spent much of his entire artistic career painting images of women. This seems like a fitting end for Mr. Paxton and I am happy for him: “Paxton was working on his last painting, a view of his living room at 19 Montvale Road, with his wife posing for him, when he was stricken with a heart attack and died at the age of 72.”

    Now yes we are! Great artist and great portraitist, William McGregor Paxton was an impressionist special, very interested in the effects of light, very well using the photographic technique, already used by the great Flemish painter of the seventeenth century, Johannes Vermeer, which Paxton was a fervent admirer.
    Among the paintings presented here (all very nice), considering the heat that suffocates Italy at this time, I like the group of Nausicaa, because, at least mentally refreshes me. However, I also say: Blessed is the shipwrecked Ulysses! He could not land in a better place!
    I find it extraordinarily beautiful “Girl With A Pink Rose”. What a beautiful look! And that manages to convey serenity!
    Thanks Suzay!

  3. Paxton was a great artist,much greater than his contemporaries but almost erased from the firmament of American XX century art by promoters of ugliness.The splendor of his color has no equal neither here nor in Europe.
