Sisters

JSS Wyndham Sisters

John Singer Sargent’s 1899 painting of the three daughters of Percy Wyndham, a British soldier, politician and art collector. From the left, the sisters are Madeline Adeane, Pamela Tennant and Mary Constance, Lady Elcho. Sargent painted the sisters in the drawing room of their family’s residence at 44 Belgrave Square in London. On the wall above the sisters is George Frederic Watts’ 1871 portrait of their mother, Madeline Wyndham, a nod to their genealogy.
