This exemplary biography is manifestly fascinating.

Olson's prose is a rich, almost Jamesian affair, ferociously literate, archly elliptical.

Stanley Olson has written a superb account.

John Singer Sargent is one heck of a good book. Read it.

This biography conveys vividly and with considerable charm and wit a sense of the social world of the distinguished American portrait painter.
