John Singer Sargent, 1856–1925, Rushing Brook, ca. 1904–11.
Sargent painted some of his earliest watercolors when he was as young as ten years old. From childhood, the format afforded him a versatile medium with which to record the people and places that captured his attention. The inscription on the verso suggests that this bold watercolor was painted at Purtud, north of Courmayeur, Italy, but the site could well be another of the many alpine regions the artist visited after 1900.

John Singer Sargent was an American artist that is widely considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation" for his displays of the luxury of the Edwardian era. He created roughly 900 oil paintings and more than 2,000 watercolors during his career, as well as countless sketches and charcoal drawings.
His parents were American, but he was born in Florence and trained in Paris prior to moving to London before enjoying international acclaim as a portrait painter. From the beginning his work was characterized by exeptional technical skill, particularly in his ability to draw with a brush. His commissioned works were in line with the grand manner of portraiture, while his informal studies and landscape paintings displayed a familiarity with Impressionism. In later life Sargent turned away from what he felt were the restrictions of formal portrait work, and devoted much of his time and energy to mural painting and working en plein air. He lived much of his life in Europe."
Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our silk scarves are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
Located in New York City, and colloquially known as 'the Met', the museum was founded in 1870 for the purposes of opening a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. It is the largest art museum in the United States and, with over 7 million visitors in 2016, was the second most visited art museum in the world, and the fifth most visited museum of any kind.
The permanent collection contains over two million works which is divided among seventeen curatorial departments. This consists of works of art from classical antiquity and ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanian, Byzantine, Indian, and Islamic art. It is also home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, as well as antique weapons and armor from around the world. There are also several notable interiors installed in the galleries, ranging from first-century Rome through to modern American design.
