Tommies Bathing

John Singer Sargent American

Not on view

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.
