In 1887, Henry James wrote of John Singer Sargent: "There is no greater work of art than a great portrait - a truth to be constantly taken to heart by a painter holding in his hands the weapon that Mr. Sargent wields. The gift that he possesses he possesses completely - the immediate perception of the end and of the means."
