Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History



  • Tommies Bathing, 1918
    John Singer Sargent (American, 1856–1925)
    Watercolor and graphite on white wove paper; 15 5/16 x 20 13/16 in. (39 x 52.8 cm)
    Gift of Mrs. Francis Ormond, 1950 (50.130.48)

    As in the other Tommies Bathing in the Museum's collection (50.130.58), Sargent employed a high, voyeuristic viewpoint. Here, however, it is enhanced by the proximity of the men to each other and their state of complete relaxation and obliviousness. With impressive technical facility he captured the shadows cast across the bodies by the blades of grass.
