John Singer Sargent & Madame X. I wonder if this was taken before or after he had to paint on the other dress strap?

John Singer Sargent - Madame X (Madame Pierre Gautreau) 1883-84. This painting was done with oil paints on canvas. This is an full length portrait and the woman in the painting looks very idealistic because of her pale white skin, extremely small waist and no visible marks/spots on the skin. The use of these idealistic features make her look goddess like or flawless. The woman's clothing and any jewellery make her look wealthy and her pose makes her look graceful and kind of snob.

The development of the portrait of Madame Pierre Gautreau, or "Madame X" by John Singer Sargent. Wonderful to see the thought process.

The Violinist/Ode to John Singer Sargent. Zhao Kailin. Kailin became enamoured of the elegantly voluptuous society portraiture of American painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). Sargent’s Madame X (1884), a full-figure portrait of a mysterious porcelain-skinned woman dressed in a long black dress that scandalized Paris’s Salon of 1884, most certainly has left its silky mark on many of Kailin’s portrait paintings.
