Sargent and the Sea

The Corcoran Gallery of Art, in Washington DC, is currently showing an exhibition of seascapes and marine themed paintings by the famous American expatriate painter John Singer Sargent.

"The exhibition will place the sea on center­stage and highlight the impact it had on Sargent’s career, the development of his style, and his artistic preferences."

"While Sargent is best known for his society portraits, Sargent and the Sea will focus on his personal passion for the sea and his knowledge of seafaring."
