John Singer Sargent (American, b.1856 - d.1925)
This watercolor was one of several Sargent completed in Florida while visiting Charles W. Deering at his Miami estate, Villa Vizcaya. Sargent was a masterful watercolorist; his confident drawing and choice of color gives the work its fresh, spontaneous appearance.
