Dorothy, 1900 Art Map Location #17

John Singer Sargent

Dallas Museum of Art

Dorothy Williamson was the granddaughter of George Millar Williamson, one of John Singer Sargent's first American patrons. Sargent painted Dorothy's portrait in London in 1900 and exhibited the work the following year at the Society of American Artists in New York. The painting showcases Sargent’s technique at its best. After drawing a few lines in charcoal to set the figure, he composed the features of his sitter with a loaded brush, capturing the little girl's direct, almost solemn gaze and bringing life and sparkle to the likeness with deft highlights and touches of color.
