Opens April 26 | John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era. What made his ‘swagger’ portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore, and how they were presented to the audience. Filmed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Tate Britain, London, and through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas, and style influencers, this compelling documentary examines how Sargent’s unique practice has influenced modern art, culture, and fashion. Step into the glittering world of fashion, scandal, and shameless self-promotion that made John Singer Sargent the painter who defined an era. (Exhibition on Screen). Film Center exclusive.
