This is the second OEN article I've published with the art of John Singer Sargent. To view the first one, titled "John Singer Sargent - Portraitist Extraordinaire to the Rich and Famous," click here.
None of the works is dated in my source, but Sargent was born to American parents in 1856 in Florence, Italy; he spent much of his adulthood travelling in Europe; and he died in 1925, in Chelsea, England. My best guess is that all seven works were completed before 1885.
As a note, most of the greatest painters of the last 250 years have "dabbled" in watercolors, which is one of the most difficult mediums known to humankind.
