John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was an American painter who spent little time in the US. He grew up in a privileged, somewhat nomadic family living in Italy and France. Exposure to European art from an early age guided his exquisite paintings that captured both everyday life and portraits with drama and elegance.

The Short Biographies series features short, intriguing, and entertaining biographies of world-renowned figures. Each beautiful hardcover book includes an interesting retelling of a single person's life, suitable for young adults and adults alike. These little gems will become beloved souvenirs of a favorite artist or a memorable trip to the museum.

Works by John Singer Sargent are in the collection of the Chrysler Museum of Art.
