John Singer Sargent

Isabella Stewart Gardner supported contemporary artists throughout her lifetime. She met celebrated portrait painter John Singer Sargent in London through their mutual friend, author Henry James, in 1886. Two years later, he painted her portrait. Over the course of their 38-year friendship, Isabella acquired 61 of Sargent's paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sculptural reliefs.
