since about Victorian times (roughly 1837 on)
Love the outfit :) Sargent could not have found a more suitable patron than Wertheimer (and his family) - involved in the art world himself, European, committed to patronage and a bit exotic. I am not sure where Sargent thought Almina might have come from, but she certainly looked very exotic :)
I knew he loved Japanoise but this was new to me.
Beautiful. I love Sargents brush strokes.
Thank you Enzie.
