About the exhibition

Organized by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, Sargent and Spain is the first exhibition to explore the influence of Spanish culture on John Singer Sargent’s dynamic visual practice. The artist developed his passion for the country and its culture over the course of seven visits, taken from 1879 to 1912. Sargent’s powerful early oils — executed at Madrid’s Museo del Prado after those by his aesthetic hero Diego Velázquez — mark the beginning of his long interest in Spain, its rich culture (both historic and modern), its people, and its magnificent urban and rural landscapes.
