John Singer Sargent's later years were largely devoted to portraiture, but that doesn't mean he neglected landscapes. His living room was dominated by a large landscape that he painted every year, changing the weather and the season. He also did two other landscape paintings every year, one for himself and one for his patron, Isabella Stewart Gardner. Sargent in fact continued to paint until the day he died in 1925 at age 81. But by then his reputation was in eclipse. He had never really recovered from the departure of his most famous patron, William Randolph Hearst. And when his own paintings began selling poorly, he was forced to rely on portraits to support himself. He did hundreds of portraits in these last years, but few of them are well known today. When John Singer Sargent died in 1925, his passing was noted by The New York Times and then forgotten. It was nearly a quarter of a century before the Metropolitan Museum of Art held a memorial show that brought him to public attention again.
