Private Tour: Sargent in Spain at the Legion of Honor
April 30 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Join us for an up close look at John Singer Sargent’s artwork inspired by his many visits to Spain.
We’re headed to the San Francisco Legion of Honor museum to see the works of legendary portraitist, John Singer Sargent. We’ve arranged for a private, small group tour for Oddlings with a docent who will give us the stories and context behind the paintings.
From the museum:
“American artist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) is known as the society portrait painter of the Gilded Age. A lifelong expatriate, Sargent made seven visits to Spain from 1879 to 1912, resulting in a remarkable body of work. This exhibition is the first to explore the influence of Spain on Sargent’s work, and the Legion of Honor will be its exclusive West coast stop. Sargent and Spain presents an array of the artist’s dazzling oils, watercolors, and drawings, along with never-before-exhibited photographs showcasing Spain’s people, architecture, and magnificent rural and urban landscapes.”
