John Singer Sargent

John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was an American painter, even though he was born in Florence, Italy and he died in London, England. He painted all sorts of things in different mediums. Sargent worked in between Impressionism and Expressionism, and he broke the tradition of drawing on the canvas with a pencil first, preferring to use broads strokes and a paintbrush from the beginning of a work.

He was known as an exceptional portraitist, working in oils. The rich and famous paid a lot of money for Sargent to paint their likenesses. He also painted landscapes in watercolors. He produced more than 1000 paintings in his lifetime.
