From murals to watercolors, Boston boasts some of Sargent’s greatest masterpieces. Malcolm Rogers tells the fascinating story behind two of the artist’s most ambitious portraits of young women: the Boits, innocent, sheltered, and psychologically ambiguous; and the Wyndhams, sophisticated, socially prominent, and sexually emancipated. Rogers explores Sargent’s career, his ambitions and frustrations, and poses the question: Is Boston’s beloved Boit daughters the greater portrait?
