It was in Rome in that he received his first instruction from a professional artist. The family moved to Paris inwhere he first entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts at the age of 18, then soon transferred to the private Studio of Carolus-Duran.

Sargent painted his mentor in He steadfastly clung to that status, despite living abroad for his lifetime, and despite being offered many foreign honors. At the age of 22, Sargent was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Salon ofwith a painting in the landscape genre. Then, inSargent first began to be seen as a portraitist in his own right, and less connected to the study with Carolus.
In the fall ofSargent visited the Prado in Madrid in order to study the Velazquez paintings first hand.
Music as a theme became a primary theme of two important works whose foundation can be traced to the Spanish trip. This painting created quite a scandal after he exhibited the work at the Salon of This public and press indignation resulted in driving away prospective sitters. InSargent moved to London.

There are also Italian gardens with statues highlighted through shimmering trees.
A distinct group of the Brooklyn watercolors are of the Bedouins, a nomadic Arab tribe. Sargent often traveled with relatives or friends; there are many figures populating the landscapes.
The outstanding publication, which accompanies the exhibition, has a special chapter which analyzes specific techniques which were used, the kinds of tools and materials which Singer utilized in creating his watercolors. Questions are addressed such as whether there was underdrawing in specific works, whether papers were from blocks or single sheets, and which kinds of brushes were used.

"To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies — all this is indispensably necessary.".
