John Singer Sargent Career

Early career

Sargent created a portrait of teacher Carolus-Duran in 1879, at the age of 23, but the virtuoso initiative received government permission and revealed the direction his mature work would go. Its participation in the Paris Salon was both a salute to his teacher and an advertisement for portrait commissions. Henry James wrote about Sargent's early work that "the barely 'uncanny' spectacle of a talent on the verge of its career has little more to learn."

Sargent traveled to Spain after leaving Carolus-Duran's atelier. He studied Velázquez's paintings with a passion, admiring the master's art, as well as gathering plans for future projects in his travels. He was entranced by Spanish music and dance. In addition, the trip awakened his own musical ability (which was almost equal to his artistic abilities), as well as his early masterpiece El Jaleo (1882). As a skilled accompanist of both amateur and professional musicians, music will continue to play a significant role in his social life as well. Sargent, especially Gabriel Fauré, became a vocal advocate for contemporary composers. Several Venetian street scene series paintings were gifted with sketches and descriptions that would be useful in later portraiture.

Sargent received several portrait commissions upon his return to Paris. His career was born. He displayed the same tenacity and stamina that allowed him to paint with workman-like tenacity for the next two decades. With numerous non-commissioned portraits of friends and colleagues, he filled in the gaps between commissions and employers. His refined demeanor, impeccable French, and exceptional art made him a standout among the younger portraitists, and his fame quickly expanded. He commanded high rates and turned down unsatisfied sitters. Emil Fuchs, who was learning to paint portraits in oils, was mentored by him.


Princess Eugenie, nicknamed a fashion fail at William and Kate's wedding in April, has been transformed into the epitome of sophistication, according to a leading celebrity stylist, April 4, 2024
At Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011, it wasn't just the bride and groom that drew worldwide notice. No further comment is required on Kate's sister Pippa's svelte appearance. And, of course, there were Beatrice and Eugenie, who most unexpectedly awaited sporting headgear of surprising - to put it more kindly - flamboyance. In Eugenie's case, an opulent Philip Treacy fascinator was paired with a striking Vivienne Westwood dress, a mixture that resulted in as much criticism as praise. And will have a long life in memory, for those that have lived long in the memory.

ALEXANDRA SHULMAN'S NOTEBOOK: At my local GP surgery, it was a bitter pill to swallow, February 25, 2024
It was certainly too good to be true, according to the author. I had been looking for the right one after decades of trying multiple local NHS surgeries. OK, not exactly Shangri-La but the receptionist answered the phone quickly, the waiting room was not overflowing, medications were delivered accurately, and I knew I needed a great doctor I could trust and knew when I needed. However, as good things come, this happy relationship came to an end last week with a text alert advising the surgery's patients that we will no longer be able to make appointments by phone or by visiting the reception desk. Rather, they were upgrading to a 'triage' model, which could be accessed online. Undoubtedly, the latest technology will not be beneficial to a large number of elderly patients who may not have internet access and who may be confused by this process. It's certainly not beneficial to me. Patients will need to tick a variety of items, ranging from "heavy bleeding" to "crushing chest pain" to the need for repeat prescriptions, according to the instructions.
