John Singer Sargent
Get to know one of the most important artists at the turn of the last century.

John Singer Sargent

Nationalmuseum’s exhibition on John Singer Sargent will be the very first exhibition on the artist in Scandinavia. Sargent is still little known in Sweden, but is internationally considered one of the most important artists at the turn of the last century.

Sargent was an American citizen but spent most of his life in Europe. He was born in Florence to American parents, was educated in France and lived for many years in the UK. The cosmopolitan life he led is clearly reflected in his painting.

Visitors to the exhibition at the Nationalmuseum will see some of the famous portraits that made his name in the same way and during the same period as our own homegrown artist, Anders Zorn. Here you will also see cityscapes and interiors from Venice, landscapes and scenes of everyday life from the Middle East and North Africa, majestic views of the Alps and a series of rarely seen charcoal drawings of nude male models.
