The exhibition Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends will be shown at the National Portrait Gallery from February 2015. John Singer Sargent was an American painter who was considered the best portrait painter of his generation.
He was born in 1856 and he died in 1925 in the age of 69. The museum will show some of the best works of the painter and visitors will have the chance to have a closer look and discover more on his art work. Sargent is one of the most outstanding American painters in the history and from the next year in London the museum will show a wide range of various portraits from the painter. Sargent was closely connected to several of the leading artists, painters, actors and musicians of the time and these connections made him possible to create the portraits more intimate than the formal portraits.
The exhibition will show a great selection of paintings of the artist, at the exhibition visitors can explore more than 70 portraits of Sargent’s time in London, Boston and Paris as well. The exhibition Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends will take place at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The exhibition will be held from 12th February to 25th May in 2015.
