Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The celebrated expatriate painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) and his heirs enjoyed a cordial relationship with the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In consequence, the museum has an unparalleled collection of Sargent's works, in particular his drawings and watercolors, which are all presented in this comprehensive volume.<P>The book contains an introduction that describes the Metropolitan's acquisition of Sargent's works, an essay on his watercolor technique, and illustrations of the 337 individual sheets and every page from four sketchbooks. Entries are organized chronologically and thematically into four sections: Sargent's childhood and adolescence; student years in Paris and early career; professional accomplishments from 1890 to 1925; and studies made during his extensive travels from 1890 to 1925.
