Visions of a Time Gone By: John Singer Sargent and Amedeo Modigliani   

John Singer Sargent was a wealthy, debonair society painter of “La Belle Époque.” Amedeo Modigliani was a struggling and sick young man who painted the poor. Here were two geniuses as different from one another as anyone can imagine. However, there is one thing they shared as observers of those who sat for them: a profound understanding of the character of their sitters. No two artists could be more different in temperament or circumstance, yet in some regards they were similar – their love of painting as a poetic form and a mutuality of feeling in their love for their profession. These PowerPoint lectures will examine the irony of their stylistic differences while reflecting a mutual desire to make art that outlasts the vicissitudes of time and place.
