The timeless style of elegant outfits and glamorous women has long since proved a popular choice for art print reproductions. The career of John Singer Sargent was much more varied that this single genre, but in terms of art prints, this is where the main focus lies.
The rivals to Sargent across American art from the earlier periods, prior to modern art, would include many from the Hudson River School such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Cole. Winslow Homer was also a highly significant artist who concentrated on seascapes, whilst Berthe Morisot was involved in the rise of impressionism.
Oils remain more popular than watercolours in most parts of Europe and North America and the vast majority of Sargent's portrait paintings were completed in oil on canvas. His landscapes, however, were normally produced in watercolours, in a similar way to the British master, Turner.
The combination of impressionism and realism used by Sargent is best suited to a more traditional frame, with inlay matt to separate the print from the inside of the frame. Posters can also work quite well for those with smaller budgets because of the bright colours used by this artist.
The most famous Sargent paintings are also the most frequently reproduced, partly due to the considerable exposure that they receive in publications and exhibitions about the artist. The likes of Portrait of Madame X, Lady Agnew of Lochnaw (pictured above) and Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose are amongst that list. The Portrait of Theodore Roosevelt is also regularly seen because of the historical importance of the subject involved.
The art retailers available online often hold a great selection of Singer Sargent paintings to choose from. They also frequently offer different sizes and qualities of prints to suit different budgets plus all manner of different framing options.
