This exhibition is the first UK presentation devoted to the watercolor paintings of John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) in nearly 100 years. Renowned as the portraitist of his generation, Sargent also devoted time to developing his talent in watercolor, undertaking several painting expeditions to Europe in the early twentieth century. Free from the constraints of his studio he was able to take inspiration from the places he visited—from the streams and glacial moraines in the Alps to the renaissance and baroque architecture he explored in Venice. This exhibition brings together 80 paintings from private and public collections, revealing Sargent’s idiosyncratic view of the world and the scale of his achievement.
