Sargent’s Women: Four Lives Behind the CanvasĀ by Donna M. Lucey

In this seductive, multi-layered biography, based on original letters and diaries, Donna M. Lucey illuminates four extraordinary women painted by the iconic high-society portraitist John Singer Sargent. With uncanny intuition, Sargent hinted at the mysteries and passions that unfolded in his subjects’ lives. These women inhabited a rarefied world of wealth and strict conventions- yet all of them did something unexpected, something shocking, to upend society’s rules.
