New Sargent Exhibit Announced

Artist and writer Katherine Tyrrell reports on a major Sargent exhibtition coming next year to London and New York. Very exciting news for Sargent enthusiasts after last year’s Sargent watercolor exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum and MFA in Boston.

” ‘Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends’ will be on display next year at the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. I’m sure this will delight many fans of portraiture!

This morning I went to the launch event for this new exhibition which has been five years in the making. The exhibition is going to be a unique perspective of some 70 paintings and works on paper by John Singer Sargent – one of the greatest portrait painters of all time.” For more details and insight, see Katherine Tyrell’s blog, Making A Mark.  via Jan Blencowe
