Sargent ha always been one of my favourite artists. Once, some years ago, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to an exhibit of his paintings. I was familiar with the society portraits (similar in type though different in style to artists like Gainsborough), but he did so many other things that I wasn't aware of until then. A lovely post, and some wonderful selections of paintings to share. Thank you!
I thoroughly endorse Canadian Chickadee's comments.
