Sargent Portraits of Artists and Friends by Richard Ormond and Elaine Kilmurray

Highlights From 'Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends' at the Met

John Singer Sargent — was one of the leading painters of his generation. His captivating portraits are universally admired for their insight into character, radiance of light and color, and painterly fluency and immediacy. Because many of the sitters were his close friends, the artist was able to take a more informal, intimate approach to these portraits than in his formal commissions—and not only are the works penetrating studies of character, they are also records of friendships, allegiances, and influences. Accompanying a major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London from February 12 through May 25, , and at The Metropolitan Museum of Art from June 30 to October 4, , this is the first book devoted to the entire career of this renowned American painter through these brilliant portraits.
