When my wife was growing up, there was a large copy of this hanging in her home. It wasn't until she was much older that she realized it wasn't a portrait of her as a toddler and her three sisters...

In my opinion. The book "Sargent's Daughters: The Biography of a Painting" is a good, concise history of the family, the relationship with Sargent and the fate of each daughter.

Yes, Erica Hirshler's book is a must-read if you're curious about the girls. She is a wonderful storyteller and an excellent scholar, two talents that don't often come together.
