John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) was the most sought-after portraitist of his generation on both sides of the Atlantic, creating powerful, vibrant likenesses of his sitters. Born in Florence to American parents, he trained in Paris, settled in London, and traveled the world in search of subjects. Portraiture represents but one component of the artist’s considerable talents, however. He likewise excelled at landscapes, genre pictures, figure studies, murals, and plein air watercolors. John Singer Sargent and Chicago’s Gilded Age will present his extraordinary breadth and skill to audiences at the Art Institute, which last hosted a major exhibition of Sargent’s work some thirty years ago.
Organized by the Art Institute of Chicago and comprising approximately one hundred objects, John Singer Sargent and Chicago’s Gilded Age begins with a key set of works from the museum’s collection and also includes both numerous objects on long-term loan to the Art Institute and major loans from private collectors and public institutions. The exhibition’s sections address Sargent and international portraiture; early genre paintings; kinship and exchanges with artists; Chicago collecting of Sargent and his circle; plein air painting among friends; figure and mural studies; and the Deering family and Vizcaya, James Deering’s grand estate in Miami.
