John Singer Sargent Nonchaloir note card. Oil painting on canvas from 1911. American realist painter John Singer Sargent’s Nonchaloir (Repose) features a beautiful young woman in a flowing gown lounging lethargically on an elegant couch beside a gold inlaid end table. The young woman has her hands folded in her lap, and stares on listlessly in the late afternoon sung. A beautiful gift for fans of John Singer Sargent, famous portrait paintings, and American art.
