John Singer Sargent - lecture by Frank Woodgate

Location:
Broadway Cinema, Letchworth
Starts:
11am
Ends:
12.20pm
Sargent was the great society portraitist of the turn of the 19th/20th centuries, but he was much more than that. His art was extremely varied and the breadth of his work can still surprise people. As well as his wonderful portraits, the lecture includes examples of his landscape paintings, inspired by the Impressionists, his work as an official War Artist in World War I, and his extremely beautiful and delicate watercolours. Frank Woodgate is a lecturer at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, and lecturer for the Art Fund, the National Trust, U3A and other organisations.
