Product description


In this fine exhibition of paintings of his friends, Sargent emerges as a more complex, multifaceted artist than the society portraitist he has sometimes been derided as. Unlike in his commissioned portraits, here revelation of characters takes precedence over the visual panache. --The Daily Telegraph

Walking into this exhibition is like being a fly on the wall at a late nineteenth-century soirée of the in-crowd ... His use of tonal expression and elegant composition flows throughout these paintings ... Sargent always retained a swift ease. The way he applies paint is delightfully contemplative. --Time Out

Anyone who enjoys the art of painting is bound to find endless charm, skill and virtuosity in Sargent's work. This exhibition, which focuses on pictures of friends, writers, musicians, actors and fellow artists, emphasises the best in him. The fun and verve are not kept on a leash, as they tended to be in his portraits of the grand and the plutocratic. --The Spectator
