Dennis Miller Bunker

Dennis Miller Bunker


Nationality: American

Birth Place: Garden City (Nassau county, New York state, United States)

Bostonian Isabella Stewart Gardner, the preeminent Gilded Age art collector, befriended and championed numerous contemporary artists, such as John Singer Sargent, Henry James, Bernard Berenson, and Dennis Miller Bunker. Born in New York, Bunker moved to Boston in 1885 and, quickly swept under Gardner's wing, painted various portraits of her family, including her brother-in-law and his children. It was through Gardner that Bunker met John Singer Sargent, who would become his great friend and mentor. In 1888, after Sargent left Boston for New York, Bunker inherited his clients, Boston's wealthiest and most prominent families.
