ARTIST

JOHN SINGER SERGENT

John Singer Sargent’s earliest views of Venice date from the summer of 1880, when the artist took a studio at the Palazzo Rezzonico and ventured out into the streets to paint. The resulting works largely comprise scenes of modern life, populated by working-class men and women idling in the narrow streets or laboring in dark interiors, rendered in a tonal palette. Sargent returned to Venice repeatedly over the next thirty years, eventually completing over 150 views of the city in both watercolor and oil. In his later watercolors, however, Sargent abandoned the moody darkness of the early Venetian scenes, and instead created dazzling architectural views filled with color and light.
