Lady Agnew of Lochnaw by John Singer Sargent wooden postcard

Lady Agnew of Lochnaw by John Singer Sargent wooden postcard

£3.99

Beautiful colour illustrated wooden postcard with Lady Agnew of Lochnaw by John Singer Sargent from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.

Andrew Noel Agnew, a barrister who had inherited the baronetcy and estates of Lochnaw in Galloway, commissioned this painting of his young wife, Gertrude Vernon in 1892.

Lady Agnew's direct gaze and informal pose, emphasised by the flowing fabric and lilac sash of her dress ensure the portrait's striking impact. It was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1893 which made Sargent's name and launched Lady Agnew as a society beauty.

John Singer Sargent was an American artist, considered the "leading portrait painter of his generation" for his evocations of Edwardian era luxury.

Printed in the UK by the Wooden Postcard Company who only use FSC certified wood for their products which is durable and comes with a printed postcard back.
