John Singer Sargent produced The Misses Vickers in 1891 at the height of his career, and has been compared favourably with the great portrait painters of previous centuries.

Friend of Museums Sheffield Robert Murray discusses how the painting adapts earlier traditions in portraiture and the context of nineteenth-century industrialisation, and Singer Sargent’s unique contribution.
