Synopses & Reviews
Accompanying an exhibition at the Seattle Art Museum that runs from December 2000 to March 2001, this volume is lavishly illustrated with numerous examples of Sargent's oils, watercolors, and sketches, in particular his portraits and studies of models and dancers. 115 illustrations, 75 in color.
The art of John Singer Sargent is sensual in its evocation of textures, atmosphere, body gestures and light. Trevor Fairbrother argues that viewing the artist as a sensualist connects otherwise conflicting elements of his oeuvre and offers a new interpretation of his life and work.
