2 minute read

 

John Singer Sargent was by far considered the leading portraitist of his generation, having painted the likes of Lady Evelyn Cavendish, Claude Monet, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Theodore Roosevelt, and the infamous Madame Pierre Gautreau. It was often his portraits of his friends and family that are considered among his most successful and innovative work, and this captivating portrait of three-year-old Laurence Millet is no exception. The son of Sargent’s close friend and fellow painter Frank Millet, young Laurence is captured here with a charm and vivacity that places this work among the greatest achievements of Sargent's early career. Intimate and modern, it represents all the best qualities of his finest portraiture.
