Sargents Women – by Donna M Lucey Description:



Sargents Women – Lucey upends our assumption that elite women of the Gilded Age were confined to a limited domestic sphere. The four women she profiles were rule-breakers and worldly sophisticates who powered through extreme challenges imposed by family social norms and illness. Each was painted by Sargent but Luceys narrative portraits upstage even his brilliant renderings revealing four not-to-be-denied women of strength and determination.–Elizabeth Broun former director Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Renwick Gallery Sargents Women – by Donna M Lucey
