by Alexandra Epps
Joining instructions will be issued to members via bulletin prior to the day
This lecture enables us to discover an artist who devoted his entire life to the creation of beauty. We look from the scandal of the painting of Madame X to the trials, tribulations and triumph of Carnation, Lily, and Rose. We discover the rise, the fall and rise again of John Singer Sargant, the leading portrait painter of his age – the age of elegance.
