Great Expectations: John Singer Sargent Painting Children
UNITED STATES
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK  •  Brooklyn Museum of Art  •  Ongoing
 
Great Expectations: John Singer Sargent Painting Children investigates how Sargent represented children in portraits and genre paintings. To underscore the centrality of childhood in nineteenth-century Western culture, the exhibition borrows its title from Charles Dickens’s 1861 novel, Great Expectations, which traces a boy’s passage from child to adult.

The exhibition of approximately 43 works on loan from important domestic and foreign collections includes commissioned portraits, portraits of family members and friends, genre paintings, and works portraying professional child models. Catalogue available.
