John Singer Sargent
Figure Bending Over

1874

About

Medium: Pencil on paper Inscribed at lower left: JS 220 Our drawing is also referred to as Young Boy Adjusting His Sandal, and is illustrated in the catalogue for Sargent's 1928 exhibition of drawings at Grand Central Art Galleries in New York. It is an example of an early study from life executed c. 1874-8.* Sargent drew continuously from an early age and had benefited from the emphasis on drawing at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Florence where he entered the life class in 1870. He arrived in Paris on May 16th, 1874, with a large portfolio of drawings, watercolors, and oils. The vivid impression that he and his youthful portfolio made on his first day at the studio of Carolus-Duran, ten days after his arrival in Paris, was later recorded by an American painter, Will Hickock Low (1853-1932).** This drawing has been reviewed and accepted by the John Singer Sargent catalogue raisonné committee.
