John Singer Sargent: Street in Venice, 16" Canvas Print, Unframed

About the Artist

By the turn of the century John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) was recognized as the most acclaimed international society portraitist of the Edwardian era, and his clientele consisted of the most affluent, aristocratic, and fashionable people of his time. Sargent resented the limitations of portraiture, however, and took every opportunity to paint a wide range of genre subjects. Around 1906 he abandoned portraiture and worked primarily in watercolor, a medium in which he was extraordinarily gifted. Although an expatriate who lived in London, Sargent was committed to America's cultural development and executed important mural decorations for the Boston Public Library (1890–1919), the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (1916–1925), and Harvard University's Widener Library (1921–1922).

John Singer Sargent painted Street in Venice (1882) during the second of his numerous visits to the city. Here, the work is reproduced on an unframed canvas for a minimalist look. Painted on the spot, Sargent depicted the Calle Larga dei Proverbi, a back alley near the Grand Canal, with Mediterranean sunshine flooding its narrow confines. A highly decorated artist, Sargent’s virtuoso is on display in the combination of technical skill and emotional intensity.
