'John Singer Sargent: Much more than a modern Van Dyck' Frank Woodgate Monday 13 November 2017

We were pleased to welcome back Frank who gave us a tour through many of John Singer Sargent's portraits and later landscapes.

John Singer Sargent with his varied and imaginative work was the leading British portraitist at the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. This lecture examined his work in this area alongside some of the great art of Van Dyck with whom he was compared by Rodin. Frank also looked at examples of Sargent’s land- and seascapes, inspired by the Impressionists, his work as an official War Artist in World War One and his beautiful and delicate watercolours.
