When artist and leading figure in portraiture, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) mastered the medium of watercolour – he developed a distinctive way of seeing and composing his unique works which would go on to become an integral part of his artistic production.

In thematic arrangement “Sargent: The Watercolours” is showcasing works produced between 1900 and 1918, arguably his best period in watercolour production.

His landscapes, architectural structures and figurative scenes will draw attention to Sargent’s unusual use of perspective and his amazing command of light.
