John Singer Sargent (12 ianuarie1856 – 14 aprilie 1925) a fost un pictor american si un portretist influent al acelor vremuri.In toata perioada carierei sale a creat peste 900 picturi in ulei si mai mult de  2000 acuarele, precum si nenumarate schite si desene in carbune. Tatal lui Sargent a fost chirurg oftalmolog la Wills Eye Hospital din Philadelphia. Dupa moartea surorii sale mai mari la varsta de doi ani, mama lui, Mary (née Singer) a suferit o depresie majora, iar sotii au decis sa plece in strainatate pentru recuperare.Au ramas pentru toata viata niste emigranti nomazi.Parintii lui Sargent se mutau in mod regulat dupa anotimpuri, cand in statiunile de la munte, cand in cele de la mare din Franta, Germania, Italia si Elvetia. In timp ce  Mary era insarcinata, s-a intamplat sa fie obligati sa se opreasca in Florenta, Italia, din cauza unei epidemii de holera, astfel ca Sargent s-a nascut acolo in 1856. Un an mai tarziu s-a nascut sora lui, Mary. Dupa nasterea ei, FitzWilliam a demisionat fara tragere de inima din postul lui din Philadelphia si la rugamintile sotiei sale a ramas in strainatate. Au trait modest si izolati cu copiii lor care evitau societatea si alti americani, exceptie facand prietenii din lumea artelor.S-au mai nascut inca patru copii dintre care doar doi au trait.

Cand avea treisprezece ani, mama lui scria ca John “face schite dragute si are un ochi ager si corect. Daca ne-am permite sa-i platim lectii de desen, curand va ajunge un mic artist.” Atunci a luat cateva lectii de la pictorul peisagist german,  Carl Welsch.Desi educatia lui era departe de a fi completa, Sargent a fost crescut pentru a deveni un tanar cult si cosmopolit, perfectionat in arta, muzica si literatura.Vorbea fluent in franceza, italiana si germana.La  sapresprezece ani Sargent era descris ca “hotarat, curios, determinat si puternic” (dupa mama lui) destul de timid, generos si modest (dupa tatal lui). Era bine-familiarizat cu multi dintre marii maestri, dupa cum nota in 1874, “Am invatat in Venetia sa-l admir foarte mult pe Tintoretto si sa-l consider al doilea doar dupa Michelangelo si Titian.”
