Join The Reading Public Museum for a special tour of Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

 

Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends brings together about ninety of the John Singer Sargent’s paintings and drawings of members of his impressive artistic circle. The individuals seen through Sargent's eyes represent a range of leading figures in the creative arts of the time such as artists Claude Monet and Auguste Rodin, writers Robert Louis Stevenson and Henry James, and the actor Ellen Terry, among others. The exhibition features some of Sargent's most celebrated full-length portraits (Dr. Pozzi at Home, Hammer Museum), his dazzling subject paintings created in the Italian countryside (Group with Parasols, The Middleton Family Collection), and brilliant watercolors (In the Generalife, The Metropolitan Museum of Art) alongside lesser-known portrait sketches of his intimate friends (Vernon Lee, 1881, Tate).

The exhibition explores the friendships between Sargent and his artistic sitters, as well as the significance of these relationships to his life and art. Prior to your tour you will be treated to lunch in the Petrie Court Café at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Reservations required by September 5, 2015. There are NO REFUNDS for cancellations. * Should The Museum need to cancel the trip due to in clement weather a full refund will be issued.
