About

A wonderful portrait of a woman from the 1950's with beautiful blonde hair wearing a white colored shirt. The impressionistic style is very attractive with fast brushwork and dashing lines. The woman's face is softly portrayed with rosy cheeks and lush red lips. A beautiful depiction with much energy and passion from the artist. The painting is signed lower right and comes displayed with a simple white frame under glass. This painting measures 16 x 14 in Framed measures 21.25 x 19.25 in Richard “Dick” Sargent, one of The Saturday Evening Post’s most prolific illustrators, was a Midwesterner born in Moline, Illinois, on March 26, 1911. His early career in art began just after his graduation from Moline High School when he went to work for a local printing and engraving plant. While there, Sargent attended night classes at the Moline Illinois Art School, the foundation for his future career as an artist. In 1951, Sargent completed his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post, “Truth About Santa,” for the December 15 Christmas issue. While Sargent’s popularity grew through the exposure he received with the Post, he also did illustration work for magazines such as Fortune, Woman’s Day, Photoplay, and American Magazine. Americans adored Sargent and his art for his ability to show relatable, pregnant scenes with open-ended conclusions that commented on the situational comedy of life. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. This original artwork is signed by the artist lower right "Dick Sargent" and includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso.
