I'm the archivist at Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester, UK).  We have a pencil sketch by Sargent of a former violin student, Lena Kontorovich. It's not an amazing piece of art but...

(. . . ) I'm very attached to Sargent personally: my step-great-grandfather is depicted in Sargent's Garden Study of the Vickers Children and a step cousin was interested in tracing the picture's provenance -- this was brilliant: very many thanks.

[I think this should be one of your major paintings because] this one has children in  . . . the fields  . . . and I feel that it represents the growth of life, like the children are young but the flowers are grown, like they will one day. I had to do and interpretation of a painting and [this] was a wonderful one.
