By Richard Ormond and Elaine Kilmurray,
Yale University Press, 224 pp., illus., hardcover, $75
This is the fourth in the planned eight-volume Complete Paintings of John Singer Sargent, a project supported by Adelson Galleries in New York. This volume focuses on Sargent's groundbreaking work in landscapes and figures during the eight year period he traveled widely in Europe and North Africa; producing such works as the Brittany inspired Oyster Gatherers of Cancale, and Fumee D'ambre Gris, which owes its mysterious veiled woman to Sargent's discovery of Tangier.
