Between 1906 and 1912, John Singer Sargent painted many oils and watercolors of his beloved niece Rose-Marie Ormond, documenting the perfect summers he spent along with her and different kinfolk throughout her teenage years.
Rose-Marie married a promising younger artwork historian, however their lives have been to be lower brief by tragedy, and the story is documented in a e-book by Karen Corsano and Daniel Williman.
“Wed in 1913, younger Robert and Rose-Marie have been ‘raised within the cult of the gorgeous,’ transferring in refined circles of artists, students, and connoisseurs. Corsano and Williman use the couple’s correspondence data to eloquently chart the tragedy that WWI brings to their lives, and to the whole thing of the European Belle Epoque. Robert perishes within the trenches as an infantry sergeant in 1917, and Rose-Marie bravely works as a military nurse till she too is killed, by German bombs, in 1918.”
“The authors’ last chapters rethink Sargent’s postwar work (together with the mural masterpiece, Triumph of Faith) as memorial to his beloved household and to the period of magnificence and refinement lower brief by the Nice Battle.” ― Booklist
