Sargent and Spain
Legion of Honor museum / February 11–May 14, 2023
SAN FRANCISCO – The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are proud to present Sargent and Spain, the first exhibition to explore the influence of Spanish culture on the dynamic visual practice of the American expatriate artist John Singer Sargent (1856–1925). His fascination with Spain, which developed over the course of seven visits taken from 1879 to 1912, resulted in a remarkable body of work. The exhibition will present an array of Sargent’s dazzling oils, watercolors, drawings, and never-before-exhibited photographs from his personal collection, which explore Spain’s rich culture (both historic and modern), its people, and its magnificent urban and rural landscapes. Sargent and Spain will be on view at the Legion of Honor museum, the exclusive West Coast venue for this exhibition.
“Chronicling moments from John Singer Sargent’s numerous visits to Madrid, Granada, Tarragona, and other Spanish locales over several decades, we are delighted to host Sargent and Spain at the Legion of Honor,” stated Thomas P. Campbell. “In this setting, Sargent’s luminous paintings of the landscapes, people, architecture, and the works of art that he studied during the course of his travels will resonate with our own holdings of Spanish paintings, particularly those by Diego Velazquez and El Greco.”
