Description The painting is the copy of a detail from 'Lady Agnew of Lochnaw' (1892) by the master portraitist John Singer Sargent. The original hangs in the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh.Sargent's dazzling and unforgettable image of Lady Agnew is one of the most famous of his many portraits of fashionable London society. For both the artist and his sitter, the painting was an instant success, establishing Sargent's reputation as the portrait painter of choice for the London elite and immediately transforming the newly elevated Lady Agnew into a society celebrity. Lady Agnew fixes the viewer with an intelligent, faintly amused gaze, but it is her elegant white silk dress and lilac sash that threaten to steal all our attention. Unfortunately, the sash didn't make into the small copy.
Kim Stenberg, Alexandria, VA Member Since March 2013 Artist Statement Sometimes a painting seems to resonate with many hearts. Since there can only be one original, reproducing a favorite subject allows more than one person to enjoy the image. So if you missed the chance to purchase an original painting of mine that you really loved, here's a chance to still own that image!
I am a self-taught artist who works in oil and watercolor. My impressionistic paintings are filled with color, light, and joy.
