John Singer Sargent Masterpieces of Art
by Janet Tyson
Italian born, American painter of the late nineteenth century John Singer Sargent was a celebrated portraitist of the wealthy and their privileged world. Renowned for his exquisite naturalism some of his best work also shows flirtations with Impressionism, particularly in his evocations of childhood, and the light falling on the gorgeous gowns of his female sitters. This beautiful book also offers a wide range his most delightful landscapes, travel scenes and watercolours.
