1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible reproduction of images 27 Jun 2013

I have loved and cherished all the books I have purchased off amazon untill I bought this one! A collection of images on my computer of John Sargent are of better quality than this book, the so called author did not even bother extracting better images that can be readily available off google search, there are repeating images like the painting titled The capriote girl which appears on two completely different pages.... What a waste of my money...! You really got me but never next time!

My favourite portrait painter but so much more besides. His skill was second to none and this book has it in shedloads. The way he handled paint was magical and I should imagine his portraits were excellent likenesses. I look through it again and again and wish I was half as talented as JSS!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice concept poorly realized 7 Aug 2012
By Dr. Ray - Published on

This may work fine on a Kindle Fire, but on a iPad running Kindle, the captions for one painting may appear on the next page over the next painting. Low resolution scans do not expand well - details are murky and the blotchy pixels nearly obscure the picture. No information except the titles (e.g., where each painting currently resides, original size, etc.). Glad it was cheap, and won't purchase any more in the series. Too bad the execution was so poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gallery on my kindle! 6 Jun 2013

I don't have an ipad so I don't have anything to say about that. I have a kindle fire, and I LOVE this download! 422 color paintings? They look fine on the kindle, and it really gives you a great range of his work that you won't find in any book. A wonderful visual history, no text necessary. It's like a really good catalog, rather than a coffee table book. So many times I get an art book that I'd rather replace excess text with more images. With this price, how can you go wrong? I love being able to just flip through them. With the kindle app, you can flip through them on your smartphone. You can always spend a lot of money for a fabulous book with interesting history tidbits, and this is not to say this kindle gallery replaces that, it's just different.

The content was good, but unfortunately the resolution was not.
This book would have been worth having if the pictures had been sharp enough to provide accurate details for zooming in.

Since I couldn't possibly afford all of these gorgeously presented volumes as coffee table tomes, which would be delightful, (I have 6 of them) this is the next best thing. This Sargent volume is probably my fave, but than, who doesn't love Sargent?? and Van Gogh, and Pissarro and Chase and the always gorgeous Klimpt!?

Fantastic book! John Singer Sargent was such a great artist who captured the spirit and feeling of those whose portraits he painted. He also had such a wonderful sense of color in his works both in oil and watercolor many look like he just painted them a few days ago!
