John Singer Sargent • 800 jpg



John Singer Sargent (Florencia, 12 de enero de 1856 – 14 de abril de 1925) fue un pintor estadounidense, considerado el "retratista de más éxito de su generación".1 2 Durante su carrera, creó cerca de 900 pinturas al óleo y más de 2.000 acuarelas, así como innumerables bocetos y dibujos al carboncillo. Su obra documenta sus viajes a lo largo del mundo, desde Venecia al Tirol, Corfú, Oriente Próximo, Montana, Maine y Florida.

Sus padres eran estadounidenses, pero él se formó en París antes de trasladarse a Londres. Sargent disfrutó del aplauso internacional como retratista, aunque no sin cierta controversia y alguna reserva crítica. Desde el principio, su trabajo se caracterizó por una destacable habilidad técnica, particularmente su facilidad para el dibujo con el pincel, que en años posteriores generó tanto admiración como críticas por una supuesta superficialidad. Sus retratos de encargo se enmarcaban dentro de un estilo clasicista, mientras que sus estudios informales y bocetos mostraban una cierta cercanía con el impresionismo. En los últimos años de su vida, Sargent se expresó ambivalente en relación con las restricciones formales del retrato, dedicando gran parte de su esfuerzo a la pintura mural y al aire libre. Vivió la mayor parte de su vida en Europa.

 Automatic translation:John Singer Sargent (Florence, January 12, 1856 - April 14, 1925) was an American painter, considered the "most successful portraitist of his generation" .1 2 During his career, he created nearly 900 oil paintings and more of 2,000 watercolors, as well as innumerable sketches and charcoal drawings. His work documents his travels throughout the world, from Venice to Tyrol, Corfu, the Middle East, Montana, Maine and Florida.His parents were Americans, but he was trained in Paris before moving to London. Sargent enjoyed international applause as a portraitist, although not without some controversy and some critical reserve. From the beginning, his work was characterized by a remarkable technical ability, particularly his ease with brush drawing, which in later years generated both admiration and criticism for a supposed superficiality. His commissioned portraits were framed in a classicist style, while his informal studies and sketches showed a certain closeness to impressionism. In the last years of his life, Sargent expressed himself ambivalent in relation to the formal restrictions of portraiture, devoting much of his effort to mural painting and the outdoors. He lived most of his life in Europe.
