Your photo of  "Breakfast in the Loggia" hanging in the Freer Gallery in Washington, D.C. misses a striking feature of its location. The painting hangs on a wall opposite the Freer's own loggia, an open gallery formed by a colonnade. Although not identical, the similarity between Sargent's loggia and the Freer's is striking. The painting is not directly opposite the loggia, I assume to protect it from sunlight entering through the ceiling-to-floor glass that separates the Freer's inner courtyard from its interior.


Special thanks to Andy Holzopfel, of Baltimore, for taking this picture on his visit to Washington D.C. and being a friend of the JSS Gallery.  See some of Andy Holzopfel's paintings.
