Wishful Wandering: John Singer Sargent

My future art collection would not be complete without a painting by John Singer Sargent.  The trouble is.... which one?  I could dedicate an entire wing of my future museum to Sargent.  Since I've always admired his painterly rendering of fabrics I'm going to go with Nonchaloir (Repose)...  I could stare at that voluminous skirt for hours on end and, if I'm extra quiet, I think I can almost hear the rustle of heavy silk.
