Washington (mea) The Corcoran Gallery of Art will feature this fall more than 80 paintings, watercolors, and drawings depicting seascapes and coastal scenes from the early career of the preðeminent late 19th century American expatriate painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925).
The exhibition will place the sea on center stage and highlight the impact it had on Sargent's career, the development of his style, and his artistic preferences.
Organized by the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the exhibition 'Sargent and the Sea' brings together the artist's early beach scenes and will be the first to examine, in great depth, the little explored marine paintings and drawings produced during the first five years of the artist's career.
