John Singer Sargent painted the study Bedouin Women Carrying Water Jars in 1891. The artist was traveling in Palestine and Egypt to find sources of inspiration and references for his new project: large panels for the Boston Public Library, a commissioned work that he took about two decades to complete. The mural project had the history of religion as its theme, motivating the artist to travel to the Holy Land to gather material.
Initially, Sargent was greatly inspired by the past master of painting, especially the Baroque artists like Diego Velazquez and Van Dyck. At an early age, the artist studied painting in European academies. While studying in Paris with Carolus Duran, his relatively young teacher, Sargent realized how to balance his unique style with what he learned from the academy by bending the rules as his intuition guided him. This change in style was gradual and culminated in a genuinely impressionistic take at the end of his career.
After the Paris Salon of 1879 awarded Sargent with an Honorable Mention for his work Carolus-Duran, the artist became famous for his portraits. He was full of commissioned portraits to fulfill of wealthy and influential people. These artworks demanded much time and attention to conclude, and he often had to deal with likes and dislikes of the sitter. Eventually, Sargent became frustrated with this way of working and sought different kind of projects to lead. He began traveling extensively to study in depth the subject of his new painting job; the murals for the Boston Public Library.
The Bedouins seen in this painting are a group or clan of nomadic Arabic people, also known as desert dwellers, from the North Africa regions. Their primary means of support comes from herding goats and camels, a cultural practice. Sargent painted a watercolor study of the same people later in 1905 in the artwork Bedouins. In the painting Bedouin Women Carrying Water Jars, Sargent depicts three women in a very Impressionistic way. With rapid brushstrokes and considerable attention to natural sunlight, the artist transmits the essence of the scene without much detail. The women wear long, dark green and navy blue garments, which covers most of their face. With one hand as support, they balance large brown and white jars of water. The background is loosely painted with a blue sky and tonalities of green vegetation.
