Don't miss Wellesley College Professor Paul Fisher present: Hostesses, Circumnavigators, Watercolorists, and Exotic Dancers: How Nineteenth-Century Women’s Culture Made John Singer Sargent
Earlier generations of art historians noticed how complex and remarkable John Singer Sargent’s portraits of women tend to be. But are these “Sargent’s women,” or do the women in the portraits actually manifest the momentous changes in women’s roles that took place during Sargent’s lifetime? This talk explores Sargent’s rich depictions of women and the many ways in which his work owes a great debt to nineteenth-century women’s culture.
The first floor of the home is fully accessible. The talk will take place in the lowest level of the home. The stairs can be bypassed via an outdoor path.
