What happens when you turn yourself over to the hands of an artist? Who decides what you wear for your portrait, and what message will your image send when it goes out into the world? Take an in-depth look at the role of dress in John Singer Sargent’s work and see how the painter manipulated fashion—and his sitters—in the service of his art.
