Fine. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. 285 pages, illustrated with 171 color and 85 b&w illustrations. "Sargent's name is synonymous with portraiture, but his dazzling images of the internal elite, which seem to define the age, are the expression of one aspect of a subtle and complex artistic personality. This catalogue is published to accompany the first major retrospective of Sargent's work since the memorial exhibitions following his death. It explores the breadth and sophistication of his achievement and addresses the Boston mural decorations, which preoccupied him for thirty years and were central to his conception of himself as an artist."
