Emily Sargent, younger sister of famed American artist John Singer Sargent, was born to American parents in Rome in 1857. While Emily painted throughout her lifetime, she rarely exhibited. Much of her output was presumed lost after her death in 1936, but a cache of some 440 works was found in the attic of a Sargent family home more than 60 years after her death. The Sargent House Museum is one of five museums to receive Emily’s watercolors.
