Join a highly descriptive virtual tour of Sargent and Spain led by a museum docent who will discuss exhibition highlights with a presentation designed for people who have low vision or are blind. The tour will take place at 11 am. A tour designed for a general audience will take place one hour prior. All are welcome to both tours. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, and both programs will be captioned. 

About the exhibition

Churches, coastlines, gardens, royal palaces, dancing — vibrant works by John Singer Sargent immerse you in the rich culture of Spain. Sargent and Spain, in its exclusive West coast stop, is the first exhibition to explore the influence of Spanish culture on Sargent’s dynamic visual practice. Celebrated as the society portraitist of his era, Sargent influenced a generation of American painters. His captivation with Spain, which developed over the course of seven visits taken from 1879 to 1912, resulted in a remarkable body of work. The exhibition presents an array of Sargent’s dazzling oils, watercolors, and drawings, along with never-before-exhibited photographs, showcasing Spain’s people, architecture, and magnificent urban and rural landscapes.
