In the Luxembourg Gardens, 1879. Oil on canvas, 25-1/2 x 36 inches. John G. Johnson Collection, Philadelphia.

In the Luxembourg Gardens, 1879, is made of grays that suggest Whistler. Sargent and Whistler may have met three years earlier, or their meeting might have been in 1880--the biographers of both artists disagree on this point. However, In the Luxembourg Gardens makes it likely that Sargent had seen his fellow Americans Nocturnes and Harmonies by 1879.
