The oil painting "Incognito" sold in February 2010.
Richard Ormond, Great-nephew of John Singer Sargent, presented "John Singer Sargent: A Personal View" at the Museum of Fine Arts/Houston in February 2010. This fascinating lecture was presented in conjunction with the exhibition "Sargent and the Sea" which is currently on exhibition. Mr. Ormond charted the family relationships and friendships that mattered most to Sargent drawing on family documents and reminiscences.
After the lecture, I was able to meet with him where I expressed my love of Sargent's work and proceeded to tell him how my wife and I had flown to England in 1998 specifically to see the Sargent exhibition at the Tate. He commented that he had co-curated that exhibition. It was indeed a humbling experience to be talking to Mr. Ormond, a direct descendant of the great John Singer Sargent. This was a very special day for me.
