        The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit

        This article from the WGBH program Sister Wendy: "American Collection" analyzes the work of John Singer Sargent, The Daughters of Edward Darely Boit. At the time of its creation, this piece was considered unconventional because of its large size (8 feet) and the scattered positioning of the four subjects, which opposed usual formal arrangements for portraits. Museum of Fine Arts, John Singer Sargent, American (1856-1925), 1882.
