About the Artist

One of America's leading portraitists, Margaret Holland Sargent has painted presidents, princes, heads of state, members of prominent families, government leaders and celebrated personalities throughout the world. Her portraits have won acclaim from both subjects and critics.

"Presidents Ford and Carter, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Dr. Jules C. Stein, General Alexander M. Haig, Jr., and Tennessee Williams have all been captured in likeness and spirit with her fresh, light style of portraiture." —The Gold Book

In 1983, Margaret Sargent was cover artist and featured in an article in American Artist magazine, the largest artist's publication in the world.

An enthusiastic supporter of career opportunities for women, Sargent was commissioned to paint the first woman midshipman at Annapolis, the first woman to graduate from West Point, and the first woman chaplain in the Armed Forces.

The previously all-male Salmagundi Club in New York City invited her to become a member in 1974. Of the artists certified for highest quality and outstanding achievement by the American Portrait Society, Sargent was the first woman. She was also the first woman Charter member of the Council of Leading American Portrait Painters

ABC-TV commissioned her to paint two full-length portraits for its daytime series Loving. The 72" x 42" paintings, each of a couple, appear as part of the Alden family mansion set and are viewed regularly by millions.

Southwest Art magazine featured Sargent in a recent issue, describing her background in theatre, films, and television. Camelot Productions selected her, a member of the faculty of the National Artist's Seminar, as instructor for a series of videos. See the Instructional DVDs page for details and ordering.
