Ticket Required

See “Fashioned by Sargent” before it opens to the public.

Step into the making of a Sargent portrait and consider ideas of curating—and controlling—one’s image. “Fashioned by Sargent” explores the artist’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.

Special exhibition tickets available to all members starting September 6.
