An outstanding selection of John Singer Sargent's (1856-1925) oils and works on paper, each dating from between 1883 and 1889, is on view through December 18, 2010, in "Sargent and Impressionism" at Adelson Galleries in Manhattan.

Sargent turned his focus to creating Impressionist landscapes, interiors, and figure studies after his portrait of "Madame X" (The Metropolitan Museum of Art), then considered a risqué likeness, caused him to suffer a painful controversy at the Paris Salon in 1884.

Among the highlights of this period in the Adelson show are two beautiful oil sketches for Sargent's beloved masterpiece "Carnation, Lily, Lily Rose" (Tate Gallery, London). Important loans from museums  include the well-known "Paul Helleu Sketching with His Wife, 1889" (Brooklyn Museum).

Adelson Galleries has sponsored research for the Sargent catalogue raisonné for over 30 years. Beginning on Nov. 18, Richard Ormond and Elaine Kilmurray's John Singer Sargent, Figures and Landscapes, 1883-1899: The Complete Paintings Volume V, published by Yale University Press, will be widely available through booksellers.
