Landmark Sargent Watercolors Exhibition to Open at Brooklyn Museum

This Friday, April 5, the Brooklyn Museum opens John Singer Sargent Watercolors, reuniting for the first time the only two major bodies of watercolors shown in the United States during the artist's lifetime, which were acquired by the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in the early twentieth century. Many of the 93 works on view, including "Bedoins" (1905-06, from the collection of the Brooklyn Museum), featured here, have not been exhibited in decades. The show will be on view in Brooklyn through July; afterwards, it travels to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and concludes at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in 2014. Featured image is reproduced from the essential exhibition catalog, John Singer Sargent: Watercolors.
