( KINDLE ) ⚈ John Singer Sargent ♠ MOBI eBook or Kindle ePUB free

An excellent book full of his masterpieces Unfortunately, in my humble opinion, the printed page cannot really do justice to his work I ve been blessed to stand in front of many of his paintings, and these reproductions pale in comparison however, I appreciated seeing what I haven t been able to see in person There are 113 large color plates and 200 black and white illustrations and a lot of information about the artist If I were a young, beautiful, rich society belle in the early 1900 s, I would choose him to paint my portrait To me he was one of the very best. EXCELLENT book of color plates and b2 photos of sketches.A good source for a Sargent bibliography.Interesting notes regarding Sargent s works, his family, and his travels. My favourite painter of all time Beautiful large colour prints and a very fluidly written accompanying biography I usually leave it open to Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose and it never fails to lure in an unsuspecting visitor Well, it would if anyone ever came to visit me Which they don t. maybe ( KINDLE ) ⚖ John Singer Sargent ♨ Sargent S Enduring Popularity Has Prompted A Thoughtful Reappraisal By Prominent Art Critic Carter Ratcliff, Who Shows Us The Surprising Breadth Of The Artist S Work Never Before Has A Book So Thoroughly Represented That Variety Lavish Color Plates And Than Halftones Convey The Brilliance Of His Portraits, The Exuberance Of His Watercolors, The Stately Pomp Of His Murals It Is Perhaps The Watercolors That Are Most Exciting To Contemporary Eyes Bold, Spontaneous, And Vividly Hued, They Have A Breathtaking ImmediacyBorn In Florence In To American Parents, Sargent Spent A Nomadic Childhood Before Going To Paris To Study Painting He Learned Quickly And By The S Had Begun The Steady Climb To Fame That Ultimately Placed Him At The Center Of His World, With A Circle Of Friends And Rivals That Included Henry James, Claude Monet, And James McNeill Whistler When Sargent Died In , A Childhood Companion Wrote In Her Memorial That The Summing Up Of A Would Be Biographer Must, I Think Be He Painted It Is The Strikingly Beautiful Results Of That Lifelong Devotion To His Art That Glow Throughout The Pages Of This Incomparable Book This lobro is the best in the world has an excellent lobreto catches you from the first paragraph Wonderful color and black white illustrations of Singer Sargent s oeuvre and a quick and easily readable and digestible work An almost exhausting number of quotes on what the art critics, art purveyors, art teachers, friends and notables of his time Henry James, Pisarro etc thought of his work Author Carter Ratcliff aims to give us some idea of the artist s lifestyle,how much he traveled,his family, his prolific output, and how he is considered by some to be the last great artist whose work shows mastery of the style of the great traditional painters and of those that begin the modern era. I love Sargent s paintings, but I felt this biography failed to make him a real person in my mind s eye The selection of paintings was rather odd why so much time spent on his murals and many were discussed in the text without an accompanying image Black and white photos of paintings may as well be verbal descriptions, and there are far too many in this book Many of the full color images are too dark to see the detail All in all a damn shoddy job I give this two stars because of its subject matter, which deserves much care and attention than this book gives him and his work. Sargent is my favourite artist Truly gifted, a painter s painter This beautiful book is a must for any Sargent fan. divine
