Additional Information

The sitter here is Mathilde Frances Seligmann, the titular Mrs Leopold Hirsch. Praised by critics for its ‘simplicity and dignity’, Sargent’s portrait is inspired in part by the portraits of Diego Velázquez, in particular his 1644 masterpiece Phillip IV at Fraga. Sargent styled Mrs Hirsch in pink and grey lace to echo the Velázquez piece. Sargent chose this painting to sent to the Royal Academy to be exhibited there in 1902, the same year it was painted.

American painter John Singer Sargent was considered the most fashionable portrait painter working in England and the USA in the late 19th century. During his early career in 1880s he was influenced by his friend Monet towards Impressionism, but by the 1890s had success with society portraits. After 1900 Sargent spent his summers on long sketching holidays and shocked social circles when he decided to give up portraiture in favour of landscapes. In 1918 he worked as a war artist and from 1890 until c. 1925 he painted murals for Boston Library and Museum.
