John Singer Sargent (American, 1856–1925)
Under the Willows, 1887
John Singer Sargent, like fellow impressionist Claude Monet, was intrigued by the effects of light and movement on water. After a visit to Monet’s home in France, Sargent, too, took up plein air painting aboard a boat. This painting is one from a series of works showing women at leisure in boats upon the water.
