Poppies

1864, 69.9 x 91.1 Oil on canvas

Painted at the Russell House on Broadway. Artist Edwin Howland Blashfield said that 'One memory remains to me of an afternoon's sitting in the dazzling poppy path. Sargent's study was better than those of the rest of us, but he finally shut his sketching easel and carried it indoors remarking, "Well, I'm stumped."' (Quoted in John Singer Sargent, Princeton University Press, Edited by Elain Kilmurrary and Richard Ormond, page 118.)
