John Singer SargentAmerican artist, who spent most of his life in London . He began his training in Paris and exhibited there from 1877. Sargent moved to England in 1884 and his early years in this country show his "impressionistic" style. From the late 1880s he established himself as a portrait painter, and was soon been described as the most fashionable portrait artist since Lawrence. In the early 1900s he tired of "paughtraiture" and concentrated on landscapes, charcoal sketches, watercolors, and the decoration of the Boston Public Library. Sargent's grave at BrookwoodHe served briefly as an official war artist in 1918. Sargent is buried in plot 35 (the "Ring").
