Reproduction of Hosea While today scholars and the public discuss Sargent first and foremost as a painter of high-society portraits, in 1923 critic J. Walker McSpadden maintained that the “foundation of Sargent’s popular fame was laid in 1890, when he received a commission to decorate a hall in the Boston Public Library. Frieze of Prophets…carried the name of Sargent into every corner of the United States. There were few parlors so humble as to be denied their ‘Hosea’ and no art store or print shop dared to run out of stock in them.”
