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. For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 10 also.

Never has an artist been more exalted or vilified throughout his career and afterwards. John Singer Sargent was best known for his remarkable portraits, mostly high-society commissions, which many of his critics hailed as mere "art applied to social requirement and social ambition." However, no one can deny the opulence with which he portrayed his wealthy patrons, nor the luminosity of his other subject matter, be it foreign landscapes, people or architecture.

I was pleased with the substantial biographical text along with the quantity of color plates (171) & black & white drawings (85 charcoal). I purchased this book just to get a full page plate of the Lady Agnew portrait, to use as reference for a copy-drawing that I was working on. I decided to purchase this compilation of JSS's work, since it was a collaboration with JSS's great nephew Richard Ormond, Art expert and director of Greenwich Maritime Museum, combined with Elaine Kilmurray's expertise in Art collection catalogue work. This book gave me much more.

My admiration of JSS's portraiture expanded after seeing the John Singer Sergeant exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum in Seattle. Especially awe-inspiring was the (at least 7 foot tall) original of "Madame X". This book is a good followup to seeing real Sargeant's paintings. Wish the Sargeant's exhibit would come back to Seattle. I have new questions since purchasing & reading this book.

Excellent book about one of America's finest artists. I was delighted to get it at such a good price. It was immaculate.

Beautiful pictures and interesting information but it did not have enough of the biographical info I was looking for.
I would like to know of a really good biography of Sargent and his sister (in case you know of one when you read this).

Received my used copy of this over-sized art book today and I haven't been able to put it down! Beautiful reproductions and interesting copy. I wish I had the $$ to buy a hardcover because I know I'll wear the binding out on this paperback by referring to it constantly(I'm a painter), but for $15 this was a great value!
Excellent!
