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.

All seven images are presented courtesy of the John Singer Sargent Catalogue Raisonnes with the collaboration of Adelson Galleries, and courtesy of Artnet's Artist Works Catalogues. To view the permission granted to the public by Artnet, click here, where it says: "Artist Works Catalogues reflect the dynamic nature of the Web, and our goal is to present a growing body of artists' online monographs. Unlike published print monographs and catalogues raisonnes, these are living catalogues, which will be constantly updated as artists create new works and estates release additional information. Artnet offers these catalogues free to the public as an educational resource. Simply click on an individual artist's image to begin, and check back often to browse new catalogues."

I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest (more...)
