Though Sargent's connection with Venice spanned over 30 years, the 141 oils and watercolors catalogued in this volume date from the period of his closest association with the city, from 1898 to 1913. A detailed map of Venice -- marked with every known location the artist painted -- orients the reader, documenting Sargent's enduring fascination with Venetian architecture. Included alongside many of the catalogued works in these 272 pages are contemporary photographs of the views Sargent chose to paint, enabling the reader to make comparisons between how the sites appeared then and what they look like today.
