This drawing will be incuded in the forthcoming John Singer Sargent catalogue raisonné by Richard Ormond and Elaine Kilmurray, New York. Sargent (1856-1925) was born in Florence, Italy, to American ex-patriates who encouraged his artistic pursuits from a young age. After studying with the German-American artist Carl Welsch in Rome and later at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, he moved to Paris to train with the renowned portraitist Carolus-Duran (1837-1917). In addition to studying with Carolus-Duran, as well as Léon Bonnat (1833-1922), Sargent enrolled in the École des Beaux-Arts in 1874, where he studied drawing, with an emphasis on anatomy and perspective. Training in both a traditional academic setting and the progressive atelier of Carolus-Duran, which encouraged use of the alla prima method of applying oil paint to a previously-painted wet surface, Sargent developed a painterly style known for its characteristic flourishes of color. This freer approach to formal rendering, in which gestural bruststrokes and strong colors present a momentary impression of the artist's initial perception, also persists in his drawings. These characteristics are manifest in the current lot. The subject is depicted frontal, her face sensitively modeled with pale tones and subtle shading. Her hair is sketched with sure pencil strokes that create sharp contrasts of dark areas against bright highlights, and the bow worn around her neck is similar in appearance to those worn by the subjects in Sargent's Harriet Louise Warren, 1877, and Emily Sargent, 1877. Sargent's free and gestural use of line and shading captures the fleeting appearance, as well as the inner emotional state, of the sitter.

LA BIOGRAFIA DI John Singer Sargent

John Singer SARGENT , pittore statunitense, nasce a Firenze il 12 gennaio 1856.
Figlio di un medico trasferitosi in Italia, Sargent mostrò fin da bambino un talento pittorico e nel 1873 seguì i corsi all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze.
L'anno successivo si trasferì a Parigi, dove studiò inizialmente sotto la guida di Carolus Duran, che gli fece conoscere la pittura degli impressionisti, e successivamente all'Académie des Beaux-Arts.
Pur non diventando mai un vero e proprio impressionista, Sargent rimase molto attratto da questo movimento, cercando di ricrearne la sensibilità nelle sue opere successive.
Nel 1878 venne accettato per la prima volta al Salon e cominciò a farsi conoscere dal sistema artistico francese.
Nel 1879 si recò in Spagna, dove rimase colpito dai dipinti di Diego Velázquez, e in Olanda, dove ammirò le composizioni di Frans Hals: questi artisti, insieme a Edouard Manet, ebbero una fortissima influenza sul suo stile.
Nel 1884 si ripresentò al Salon, ma ricevette così tante critiche da decidere di trasferirsi a Londra.
In Inghilterra continuò a specializzarsi nel ritratto a valenza psicologica, ottenendo un grandissimo successo presso l'aristocrazia e l'alta borghesia europea e americana.
Qui incontrò altri pittori e scrittori americani, tra cui Edwin Austin Abbey ed Henry James, che contribuirono a formare il suo stile maturo.
Nel 1886 allestì uno studio a Londra, nell'elegante quartiere di Chelsea.
Nel 1887 tornò per la seconda volta negli Stati Uniti, dipingendo ritratti e grandi cicli di pitture murali in edifici pubblici a Boston e a New York.
Nel 1889 ricevette il Gran Premio all'Esposizione Universale di Parigi e fu nominato cavaliere della Legione d'Onore.
Nel 1894 fu nominato associato alla Royal Academy di Londra e nel 1897 ne divenne membro effettivo.
Negli anni successivi continuò a viaggiare, a dipingere e ad esporre i suoi quadri nelle sedi più prestigiose in Francia, in Inghilterra e negli Stati Uniti.
In particolare rilevanti i suoi viaggi in Italia, durante i quali, nel 1913, soggiornò sul lago di Garda, dipingendo una serie di acquarelli molto interessanti per impostazione e taglio dell'immagine a San Vigilio (molto notevoli quelli legati al caratteristico porticciolo in pietra.
Di grande valore anche le serie di acquerelli realizzati in occasione dei diversi soggiorni a Venezia, città cui Sargent fu sempre legato.
Sargent muore a Londra il 15 aprile 1925.
