Blending the splendor of Grand Manner portraiture with a loosened and expressive brushstroke, American expat painter John Singer Sargent became internationally renowned for his elegant likenesses. This splendor is showcased in The Complete Paintings of John Singer Sargent.
Born to American parents yet spending the majority of his life and career in Europe, Sargent infused his work with the influence of contemporary masters, particularly the rising trend of Impressionism in Paris. As a result, Sargent seamlessly blended the reverence of traditional formal portraits with an expressive and vibrant touch. This break with tradition made Sargent the coveted portraitist for numerous society figures and thus catapulted the painter into artistic celebrity. Adding to that legacy, Musebooks is thrilled to offer the digital Complete Paintings of John Singer Sargent.
