A Triumphant Triad: Sargent, Sorolla, and Zorn

Published January 7, 2020

Neill Slaughter will be presenting a lecture at the Salmagundi Club on John Singer Sargent, JoaquĆ­n Sorolla, and Anders Zorn.

These artists became internationally renowned during their lifetimes as portrait painters. Ironically, all three eventually grew weary of the demands of commissioned portraiture, and of having to deal with pompous and prickly personalities, preferring instead to paint landscapes
or seascapes often populated with peasants, family, and friends. All three of these internationally famous artists fell into obscurity after their deaths with a revival of interest in their work occurring only in the last three decades.

The lecture takes places on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at the Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10003 and admission is $10.
