Impressionism   •   John Singer Sargent @ Wikipedia

John Singer Sargent was the most important American portrait painter in his day. Ca 2000 watercolor paintings, 900 oil paintings and countless sketches and charcoal drawings are part of his life's work.

Sargent's childhood was unusual, as his parents lived in Europe and seldom stayed longer in one place. Sargent enjoyed little formal education because of this unconventional way of life. He lived in Rome, Dresden, Florence, Paris or London. Even as he grew older he traveled a lot, and so his pictures show scenes from Tyrol, Italy, Tangier, Algiers, Palestine, Egypt, France, Spain, Portugal, England, Scotland and Norway.

In 1884 he took part in the Salon de Paris. He submitted the portrait of Madame X, triggering a scandal. In this painting, the lady showed more naked shoulders than the Parisian salons found convenient. Although Sargent was repeatedly admired for his technical abilities, he was also accused of being superficial. At the turn of the twentieth century, he was the world's most sought after, celebrated and most expensive portrait painter. © Meisterdrucke
