Fashioned by Sargent

Published on October 19, 2023

Organized with Tate Britain, “Fashioned by Sargent” explores the artist’s complex relationship with his often-affluent clients and their clothes. The exhibition reveals Sargent’s power over his sitters’ images by considering the liberties he took with their clothing choices to express distinctive personalities, social positions, professions, gender identities, and nationalities. Alongside about 50 paintings by Sargent, over a dozen period garments and accessories shed new light on the relationship between fashion and this beloved artist’s creative practice.

The exhibition runs at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston,  465 Huntington Ave, Boston MA 02115 from October 8, 2023 – January 15, 2024.
