The Travels and Art of John Singer Sargent

Thu 17th Oct 2024 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We will explore his ability to capture a sense of place - the atmosphere, light, colours
and textures of a land or seascape - with an intimately personal and often unusual
interpretation. Whether it be luscious pomegranates in a Spanish orchard, brilliant hues
of poppies in the Cotswolds, silver light on glistening fish in Norway, jewel-like reflections
on water in Venice or Lake Garda, or the intense sunlight and heat of Morocco and the
desert. And his most daring journey of all, in 1918 age 62, as a war artist travelling to the
war torn trenches in France.
