Book Review: The Watercolors of John Singer Sargent

The Watercolors of John Singer Sargent - 01


This is a nice large paperback book collecting the watercolour paintings of John Singer Sargent (1856-1925).

There portraits, Venice, Africa, the mountains, Europe and even scenes from World War I. All the paintings are printed wonderfully big, all the more better for admiring the brush strokes and techniques.

His use of colours is masterly. You cannot exactly pinpoint the colour scheme he uses, and the end result is always quite balanced. The techniques and effects he used are very different from the usual watercolour styles, and in certain cases look like oil paintings.

At 160 pages, it has plenty of artwork to marvel at.

The Watercolors of John Singer Sargent is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
