John Singer Sargent

John Singer Sargent (1856 – 1925) was an American artist, considered the “leading portrait painter of his generation” for his evocations of Edwardian era luxury.

His paintings are so amazing, they are frequently used by new artists as studies, that’s how I found about him after I saw some posts on facebook from aspiring digital artists.
