About the Artwork

Figure in Hammock, Florida, 1917. John Singer Sargent. Watercolor, gouache, and graphite on white wove paper. Gift of Mrs. Francis Ormond, 1950.
In February 1917 Sargent took time off from his Boston Public Library mural project to travel to Ormond Beach, Florida, to paint a portrait of John D. Rockefeller (Rockefeller Collection, Kykuit, Tarrytown, New York). After completing the portrait he continued south to the Miami area to visit Charles Deering, a friend and important patron whom he had met during his student days in Paris. This watercolor may depict Deering at his residence at Brickell Point on the Miami River.
