National Gallery of Art - EXHIBITIONS
  The dashing and often daring portraits of John Singer Sargent (1856 - 1925) shape our vision of British and American high society at the turn of the century. Elegant and full of panache, these paintings convey glamour and status while capturing the individuality of each sitter with a rare immediacy. Portraiture, however, was only one aspect of Sargent’s career; he was also a prolific landscape and figure painter, who found inspiration in his travels throughout Europe and North Africa. John Singer Sargent marks the first occasion since the memorial exhibitions mounted after his death that so many of the artist’s works are shown together. In addition to some of his finest portraits, the exhibition includes impressionist landscapes, experimental figure compositions, and a group of luminous watercolors from the last two decades of Sargent’s life.
