. . .What prompts me to write is that I think I found an oil piece of Mr. Sargents that you list as watercolor. The "A Garden in Corfu". Cross-check with the Athenaeum site info. Sorry to be a pain as I have such a love of the oil medium that I had to stick up for it. Once again, a masterful site. I will consider a donation.
As do many artists, I have truly enjoyed a strong and lasting influence of JS Sargent's work since my art school days as the 80's just started. I was fortunate to see the retrospective in '86 at Whitney in NYC. Thank you for this site, it is a touchstone. . . .
Best regards, Stan
Thanks Stan, Yeah it sort of looks oil to me too but someone sent me a letter sometime ago that said it was a watercolor (can't find the letter now)
Good luck with your art and thanks for your help.
