    • John Singer Sargent was born in Italy of expatriate parents. He trained in Florence and Paris (studying under Emile Auguste Carolus-Duran). He settled in London around 1884/5. There he painted not only high society which he is most famous for today, but brilliant watercolours. He also visited the US frequently.

      • Was a friend of Monet. He met him in 1870 and bought his paintings

      • Left over 2,000 watercolours
      • His most notorious picture is Portrait of Madame X (Mme Gautreau) (1884). When it was originally exhibited in Paris it produced such a negative reaction that it was one of the reasons he moved to London
