这位保姆和她的丈夫,画家查尔斯·吉福德·戴尔,是19世纪末在欧洲生活和工作的美国艺术家侨居社区的一员。约翰·辛格·萨金特作为一名专业艺术家首次在威尼斯长期逗留期间画了这幅肖像。这项工作可能是友谊和分享经验的纪念品,而不是正式的委托。其相对较小的规模和背景的薄,快速的笔触表明,萨金特完成了画布在一个单一的坐。这幅画的暗色调和有限的调色板让人想起西班牙大师迭戈·韦拉兹克斯,萨金特在19世纪70年代末的学生时代,甚至在整个职业生涯中都特别关注他。

The sitter and her husband, the painter Charles Gifford Dyer, were part of an expatriate community of American artists that lived and worked in Europe in the late 19th century. John Singer Sargent painted this portrait during his first extended stay in Venice as a professional artist. Rather than a formal commission, the work likely served as a souvenir of friendship and shared experiences. Its relatively small scale and the background’s thin, quick brushwork suggest that Sargent completed the canvas in a single sitting. The painting’s dark tones and limited palette are reminiscent of Spanish masters such as Diego Velázquez, whom Sargent looked to in particular during his student years in the late 1870s, and indeed throughout his career.
