Paul T. Sargent Oil On Canvas Painting

Signed on Back "Paul T Sargent Art Institute Chicago ILL"

Circa 1906-1912: Paul Turner Sargent (1880-1946) was a third generation rural midwesterner from Coles County, Illinois with a love for painting. With his talents encouraged early on, Sargent earned an art degree at Eastern Illinois University and then travelled to Chicago to study at the prestigious Art Institute from 1906 to 1912. It was there he completed this 23" x 27" study of a nude woman reclining. Although known for his landscape paintings and extensive work with the Brown County Indiana Art Society, this early student work of a highly unusual subject matter for Sargent shows his confident use of color and brushwork, especially the long brush strokes evident in his later paintings. Bold, heavy application of subdued colors harken to the arts and crafts era. This may be the only known Sargent oil on canvas female nude yet to surface and is a rare find for collectors of Illinois and Indiana art.
