Artwork Title: Madame Belleroche

Madame Belleroche, 1884

John Singer Sargent

Albert de Belleroche's mother ( Albert de Belleroche was a friend and studio-mate of John Singer Sargent in Paris and London, with the men making many sketches and paintings of each other. Some of the works that Sargent made of Belleroche are suggestive of an emotional relationship between the men and Belleroche may have been the love of Sargent's life. Dorothy Moss, an art historian, states "Sargent's portraits of Bellerouche, in their sensuality and intensity of emotion, push the boundaries of what was considered appropriate interaction between men at this period."
