    John Singer Sargent, Study of Madame Gautreau. This is one of my favorite portraits ever. The postcard version is totally up on my wall.

    John Singer Sargent, ‘Study of Mme Gautreau’ c.1884. The adverse criticism of the finished portrait at the Paris Salon of 1884 so damaged Sargent's reputation that the following year he moved to live permanently in Britain. His later portraits were never so adventurous.
