Description: John Singer Sargent's name evokes paintings of marvelously gowned Edwardian belles, of brooding aristocrats and princes of industry. Born in Florence in 1858, he spent a nomadic childhood before studying painting in Paris. He learned quickly and by the 1880s had begun the steady climb to fame that ultimately placed him at the center of his world, with a circle of friends and rivals that included Henry James, Claude Monet, and James McNeill Whistler.

Sargent's enduring popularity has prompted a thoughtful reappraisal by prominent art critic Carter Ratcliff, who shows us the surprising breadth of his art -- the extravagant glamour of his portraits, the exuberance of his watercolors, the stately pomp of his murals. It is perhaps the watercolors, reproduced here with sparkling fidelity, that are most exciting to contemporary eyes -- bold, spontaneous, and vividly hued, they capture his subjects with breathtaking immediacy.
