Running time: 100 mins

JOHN SINGER SARGENT Directed by David Bickerstaff John Singer Sargent is known as the greatest portrait artist of his era. What made his Ďswaggerí portraits remarkable was his power over his sitters, what they wore and how they were presented to the audience. Through interviews with curators, contemporary fashionistas and style influencers, Exhibition on Screenís film will examine how Sargentís unique practice has influenced modern art, culture and fashion. Filmed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Tate Britain, London, the exhibition reveals Sargentís power to express distinctive personalities, power dynamics and gender identities during this fascinating period of cultural reinvention. Alongside 50 paintings by Sargent sit stunning items of clothing and accessories worn by his subjects, drawing the audience into the artistís studio. Sargentís sitters were often wealthy, their clothes costly, but what happens when you turn yourself over to the hands of a great artist? The manufacture of public identity is as controversial and contested today as it was at the turn of the 20th century, but somehow Sargentís work transcends the social noise and captures an alluring truth with each brush stroke. Step into the glittering world of fashion, scandal and shameless self-promotion that made John Singer Sargent the painter who defined an era. Explore the unique creative process of the late 19th centuryís favourite portrait artist and the way in which his portraits captured the spirit of a vibrant and rapidly changing age.
