This exhibition highlights with compelling immediacy the fluency of John Singer Sargent’s watercolour technique, as well as his unconventional use of composition and subject matter. Sargent’s mastery of the medium equaled the likes of Turner, Cezanne and Winslow Homer. The rhythm of his brushwork, the surface, the palette and patina of his paint, make these works strikingly individual and lyrical. Leading experts in the field, Richard Ormond and Elaine Kilmurray, are guest curators of this exquisite show and authors of this beautiful publication. Their careful selection and entrancing thematic hang have created an experience worthy of Sargent’s reputation, providing us with a unique and enduring account of the artist’s biography and new insights into Sargent’s watercolour oeuvre.
