The Extraordinary Talent of John Singer Sargent by Brian Healey

Few artists can match the achievements of this American artist who trained in Paris  and spent much of his life depicting the world of the belle époque, from leisurely days on the Grand canal, to the  society women of New York. His style is uniquely his own, impressionistic and realistic at once, flamboyant and spontaneous with a bravura  and exactitude reminiscent of Velasquez and Van Dyck. Few can fail to be inspired by his exquisite handling of colour, tone and light, whether in oils or watercolour, landscape or portrait, his genius is universal.
