Details

Although ranked alongside Whistler and Sargent as one of the leading portrait painters of his age, John White Alexander (1856–1915) earned critical acclaim for his figure paintings, which often showed women in evocative poses and flowing dresses. Illustrated with 90 images, this first in-depth biography discusses the artist’s childhood poverty, the influence of his muse Juliette Very, and how he used techniques learned from his contemporaries to create his own style.
