Sargent was the foremost American portrait painter of the late 19th century, born in Florence he travelled extensively in Europe, studying art in Florence at the Accademia delle Belle Arts and in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In 1875 he sketched in Barbizon and then joined the bohemian English colony in Grez. In 1877 he assisted Carolus-Duran with a
large ceiling decoration for the Louvre, in the late 1870's he sketched in Italy and North Africa, then studied with
Velazquez. His visits to Venice in the early 1880's brought him into contact with Whistler and Duveneck, he then settled
 in London travelling to America to execute portrait commissions, and also became involved with mural decorations for the Boston Public Library. Sargent achieved success as a portraitist and was elected an associate of the Royal Academy. He devoted his later years to landscape and mural painting.
