Under the Willows Small Boxed Cards
John Singer Sargent (American, 1856–1925)
Under the Willows, 1887
John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), like fellow impressionist Claude Monet, was intrigued by the effects of light and movement on water. After a visit to Monet’s home in France, Sargent, too, took up plein air painting aboard a boat. On the Thames River in England, he painted a series of works showing women at leisure in boats upon the water.
