Know Before You Go: Sargent And Fashion

6 March @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Celebrated for his striking portrait paintings, the exhibition Sargent and Fashion at Tate Britain from 22 February 2024 to 7 July 2024 sheds new light on John Singer Sargent’s acclaimed works. Jo Rhymer will explores how he worked as a stylist to craft the image of the sitters he painted, with whom he often had close relationships.

Sargent used fashion as a powerful tool to express identity and personality. He regularly chose the outfits of his collaborators and manipulated their clothing. Almost 60 of Sargent’s paintings will be on display, including major portraits that rarely travel. The show examines how this remarkable painter used fashion to create portraits of the time, which still captivate today.
