Margarett Sargent was a talented painter back in the golden age of the 20-30s, when art was transitioning from classic traditional to modern. A Boston-born socialite, she was also a distant cousin of famous painter John Singer Sargent, whose work she loathed. She lived a fascinating, but somewhat tragic and selfish life - as many wealthy, artistic, and creative types did at the time. Talented, but tainted by alcohol and depression, she wasn't nearly as productive or famous as she probably could have been. Definitely an interesting read about an interesting time and a complicated woman.

The White Blackbird book. I loved this character, Margarett Sargent, and thrilled that Honor Moore was able to connect with her on her deathbed, a connection that had been hampered by Moore's mother's resentment of her mother's ambition. I am familiar with these complex resentments, having worked my way back from rebellion to friendship to advocacy of my own artist-mother.

This is a wonderful biography of a female sculptor and painter of considerable accomplishment and promise who abruptly stopped exhibiting in mid-career due to the pressures of her marriage, family life and position in Boston Society. Written with very perceptive insights by her granddaughter, it is a riveting story of an exceptional life and an evocative portrait of the times and society she lived it--pre WWI Boston debutant society, the twenties in Paris and the life of the rich during the depression. Women may especially like this book, for obvious reasons, but any man interested in the tortured life of an artist--this time one we have never heard of--will be absorbed. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Beautiful. Honor Moore allows us priviledged access into a life of pain and priviledge.

I know the author, Honor Moore, and her family who lived nearby when they were in Indianapolis. Margarett was quite an interesting person, lived life to the fullest.

I don't know why this book isn't better known, or why we haven't heard much more from Honor Moore, whose grandmother's life is fascinating, tragic and ultimately mysterious. Unlike so many contemporary biographies, this one isn't overly long or obsessed with detail at the expense of perspective. An exquisite piece of work from start to finish--one of the best biographies I have ever read.
