Sargent, Sorolla and Zorn became internationally renowned during their life time, primarily as artists who painted portraits, thereby preserving for posterity a wide array of individuals ranging from fellow artists, to the aristocracy of Great Britain and Europe, from Lords and ladies to Kings and Queens as well as the robber barons of America and even US Presidents. In short, they painted everyone that was anyone. Ironically, all three eventually grew weary of the demands of commissioned portraiture, of having to deal with pompous and prickly personalities, preferring instead to paint landscapes or seascapes often populated with peasants, family and friends. Also ironic is how quickly all three of these internationally famous artists fell into obscurity after their deaths. Only relatively recently, particularly the last couple of decades, has there been a revival and re-appreciation of the brushy naturalism or realism associated with this Triumphant Triad of Sargent, Sorolla and Zorn.
