Young Woman with a Black Skirt

John Singer Sargent American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 773

Like many of his contemporaries, Sargent was attracted to Venice and visited the city frequently throughout his life. This watercolor of a young woman in Venetian peasant costume relates to his genre paintings of the period but also reveals his longstanding interest in the exotic.
