Sybil Sasson, Countess of Rocksavage (later Marchioness of Cholmondeley) She married the Earl of Rocksavage, and they were later Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley.[2]

Sir Philip Sasson was Sybil's brother and John Sketched and painted him as well. 


1) From Matt: I'm thinking this painting was executed around the same time as the charcoal sketch as opposed to the 1922 painting of her, both of which are already on your site.  There is an entry in the index compiled by the Pragmatic Romanticist that 

132 - Marchioness of Cholmondeley, inscribed: To Sybil from her friend John S. Sargent 1913. 34 x 26 1/2, Marchioness of Cholmondeley 

and since that list is titled 'Works in Oil' I'm assuming it is not the charcoal portrait, but is the one I have attached here.

2) from Edmund Swinglehurst's John Singer 
Sargent, 2001. 

Special thanks to Matt Davies, of Kansas City, a friend of the JSS Gallery, for sending me a  note regarding this image.
