One of the most outstanding portraits (in my opinion) is Sargent's portrait of Frederick Sleigh Robert (The Earl of Kandahar). Sargent captures the essence of this career military man (who served in India, Afghanistan and South Africa) in a most masculine portrayal of Roberts in his Field Marshal Uniform.
A truly dramatic likeness that has
never really been well publicized.
