Fashioned by Sargent at the MFA Boston

John Singer Sargent is one of my favorite American painters. (In fact, he is one of what I call "The Great American Triumvirate" which consists of Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent.) I thoroughly enjoyed the show Fashioned by Sargent, which is at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston MA.

We were there at 11 AM on a Friday, and the gallery was full.

I love painting, and I love the way Sargent handles paint.

The clothes were a big focus of the show, but Sargent was a hell of a portrait painter. This is a closeup.

My favorite painting in the show is the famous Lady Agnew.

Thank you so much for sharing your visit! How wonderful to have seen a collection on Sargent's work. I noticed that you captured the beautiful red dress in one of your photos. I think it's so cool that museums either own some of the dresses on his subjects or have reproduced them.
