Gibson House Museum to Offer Virtual Program on ‘Sargent’s Women’
Gibson House Museum will offer a virtual program called “Sargent’s Women: Four Lives Behind the Canvas” on Tuesday, Feb. 7, from 7 to 8 p.m.
In this illustrated virtual lecture, author Donna M. Lucey will explore the extraordinary experiences of four women painted by the iconic, high society Gilded Age portraitist John Singer Sargent. Each woman inhabited a rarefied world of large fortunes and strict conventions yet managed to do something unexpected to upend society’s rules. Basing her research on original letters, and diaries, Lucey uncovered stories of forbidden love, family conflict, ambition, desire, and triumph.
Admission is $12 for non-members of the museum and $10 for members. Register at https://www.thegibsonhouse.org/events.
