In a Garden, Corfu (Jane Emmet de Glehn) by John Singer Sargent, 1909,Terra Museum of American Art, Chicago
This is of one of my relatives that was painted by Sargent, he did another one and I will post that eventually too. I will also be posting paintings by a few of the Emmet painters from that era.
Following her marriage to de Glehn, the couple honeymooned in Cornwall, England and vacationed in Paris and Venice and made a permanent home in London. In England Jane continued to draw and paint, exhibiting her work at the New English Art Club, the Royal Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. She worked mainly in the mediums of chalk and charcoal. The young couple become frequent travelling companions of the American painter John Singer Sargent, whom Jane Emmet de Glehn had met at performance of the dancer Carmencita in 1890, and between 1905 and 1914 the trio often depicted each other in each of their works whilst travelling throughout Europe.
