John Singer Sargent Lecture with Beth Stein (ZOOM & IN PERSON)

May 18, 2023
  • Details

    The name John Singer Sargent brings to mind paintings of society ladies, powerful men of industry and their families – portraits that made him one of the most popular painters of his day.  However, he was also an extremely talented watercolorist and muralist who left his mark both on the continent of Europe and in the United States.  His education as the child of expatriates in Italy, his experiences touring in Europe, studying and painting in Paris and then London and the English countryside contributed to his great popularity when arriving in Boston and New York.  His circle of friends and colleagues included Claude Monet, Henry James and Isabella Steward Gardner, among others.  His work has stood the test of time, and has led scholars to more closely examine both his life style and tastes.  Join BETH STEIN as she discusses the ‘charmed’ life of John Singer Sargent.

    This program was made possible by a grant from Mass Cultural Council.
