In direct emulation of the famous John Singer Sargent, whom he had met in London, the society portraitist Gordon Stevenson adopted the practice of painting landscapes in watercolor during his summer travels. The lasting impact of Sargent’s innovative approach and technical freedom in the medium—developed during the first decade of the century—is visible in Stevenson’s effort to achieve a similar degree of coloristic brilliance and in his deft manipulation of liquid washes.
