Another painting here to add to my upcoming show The Ladies - featuring one of, literally, hundreds of women John Singer Sargent painted. The commissioned portrait Lady With the Rose was Charlotte Louise Burckhardt, the 22-year-old daughter of wealthy parents. Louise's mother was an old acquaintance of Sargent's and had plans for her daughter to marry the artist, but after a brief, two-day affair, they decided to remain friends rather than love interests.
The Sargent portrait hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
