Sargent: Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose (custom print)
Sargent's Impressionist painting depicts girls lighting Japanese lanterns in a rose and lily filled garden and was painted in the Cotswolds. The inspiration came during a boating expedition Sargent took on the Thames at Pangbourne. Polly and Dorothy (Dolly) Barnard, the daughters of the illustrator Frederick Barnard were the models, because they had the exact hair colour Sargent was seeking. Dolly, aged eleven, is on the left; Polly, aged seven, is on the right.
