Greater Boston Wheaton Club MFA Event
January 11 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM$20
The Greater Boston Wheaton Club invites you to the Museum of Fine Arts, Fashioned by Sargent Exhibit and a reception prior to the exhibit.
Organized with Tate Britain, “Fashioned by Sargent” explores the John Singer Sargent’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 sartorial 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.
6 p.m. – Meet at the New American Cafe (located in the MFA) to gather before entering the exhibit at the 6:30 and 7 p.m. ticket times.
