Roberts, January, 1918; Sculpture by Mrs. Gertrude V. Whitney, Water Colors by Mrs. C. W. Hawthorne, Pictorial Photography, February, 1918When the history of American painting has been written for all time, two names will stand out prominently among the most important artists that this country has ever produced. They are Winslow Homer and John Sargent. The first of these men was born in Boston and was almost entirely self taught. He became a lithographer and then Harpers' corre spondent at the front during the early years of the Civil War. From this he developed into the foremost American marine painter. Later he took up the more summary medium of water color, working broadly for effects of light and color.John Sargent was born of American parents in Florence, received his first training in the Academy there, and later was a student under Carolus Duran. From this training he emerged a most facile portrait painter, being considered by eminent authorities the first portraitist since-reyno'ds and Gainsb.orough After he had acquired fame and fortune in this branch of oil painting, he gave it up for water color, with the interesting results here shown.This exhibition is especially remarkable because it brings to us unfamiliar work by familiar masters. All lovers of art are well acquainted with oil paintings by both artists but many of them have never had such an excellent opportunity to view and study their work in another medium.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
