John Singer Sargent's Changing Vision

John Singer Sargent broke from the traditions of salon-style studio painting to embrace the newfound freedom of Impressionism and over his lifetime, Sargent’s vision evolved, becoming truly modern. It is this transformation that we see in 'Poppies,' a dazzling canvas from 1886 that leads Sotheby’s American Art auction on 18 May and that perfectly captures a pivotal moment in the artist’s brilliant career.
