Redemption Achieved
John Singer Sargent's Crucifixion of Christ with Adam & Eve and its Place in His Work

John Thomas

Sargent's sculpture of Christ's crucifixion was created to form the centrepiece of the "Christian end" of the mural cycle The Triumph of Religion, with which the artist decorated part of Boston Public Library (Massachusetts), a cycle which occupied him from 1890, but remained unfinished in 1917. In addition to the plaster and wood relief in situ in Boston, Sargent commissioned a series of bronze casts of his work, large (life-size figures: St. Paul's Cathedral, London), medium (Tate Gallery, London, and Fogg Museum, Harvard), and small (which were given as presents, to friends, and are now mostly in public collections [shown here; Bristol Art Gallery]). This little book is the first major study of this important fin de siècle work. The Foreword is by Richard Ormond, the foremost Sargent scholar.
