John Singer Sargent - part 12


John Singer Sargent (1866 - 1925) was an American artist, considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation" for his evocation of Edwardian era luxury. During his career he created approximately 900 oil paintings and more than 2000 watercolours, as well as countless sketches and charcoal drawings. His oeuvre documents worldwide travel, from Venice to the Tyrol, Corfu, the Middle East, Montana, Maine and Florida, amongst others.

  1. Many thanks. Your work in compiling this life's work is really appreciated. His portraits are of course magnificent insights to the sitter's personality, but now it starts to get even more interesting as the volume of watercolors increases.
