Product description

Review

"This is the first volume in a complete-works catalog that will include oil paintings, watercolors and pastels by the 19th Century American expatriate. . . . It encompasses a number of his most famous paintings, reproducing them beautifully in color and providing a number of luscious closeups of his virtuoso brushwork. The superb introductory essay sets his work against artistic theories of the period, and detailed entries on the paintings provide even biographical accounts of the sitters. A book that amply justifies its sixteen years of labor--and not only to specialists."--Alan G. Artner, Chicago Tribune

"This second volume of Ormond and Kilmurray's comprehensively researched catalogue raisonne of Sargent's work in oil, watercolor, and pastel provides the most extensive provenance, publication, and exhibition histories to date for nearly 150 extant and untraced or destroyed portraits and portrait studies from the decade during which the artist reached the pinnacle of his career. . . . [An] impressive package, [and] an invaluable research tool for scholars. Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and researchers."--Choice
"This magnificent, erudite compilation demonstrates fittingly that Sargent was the outstanding society portraitist of his age. . . . It is a volume that should be in every library."--Byron Ireland, Day by Day
"This superb monument of art scholarship finally does justice to the greatest portrait painter of modern times."--New York Sun
"The Early Portraits is a lavishly illustrated, handsome publication, fully embodying the high standard for art books, particularly those on painting, we have come to expect from Yale University Press. . . . This is fine, evocative writing, which goes far to suggest why Sargent's early portraits merit our close attention. The Early Portraits thoroughlyestablishes the factual record of their creation and has immediately become a standard reference in their continuing appreciation."--Mary Crawford Volk, New England Quarterly
