From 1882 to 1884, John Singer Sargent painted his greatest masterpieces—the Daughters of Edward Darley Boit and Madame X—haunting portraits with dark psychological depths. The first unconsciously revealed a secret that would cause great anguish in his private life; the other created a social scandal that drove him from Paris forever. Portraits of an Artist brings to life the subjects of Sargent’s paintings—his family, friends, enemies and lovers—to tell his story from their own perspectives. John Singer Sargent’s portraits told more than he ever wanted anyone to know.
