John S Sargent

Far more than just thumbnails, this gives you a complete list of his paintings known to be on the Net as well as a chronology of his life, extensive essays, and a look at other artists he knew. As a living document, I'm in the process of building these pages. If you know of anything I've missed, please let me know.

Born in 1856, he lived until 1925. Although significant works are still missing, this collection, with over 3,700 webpages and growing, will I hope give you a good step towards understanding the arch of his wonderful talent. 

I would love to hear what you thought . . .
