The Brooklyn Museum of Art is about to open a major exhibition of John Singer Sargent's watercolors, from April 5 through July 28th. As described on the museum's website: "This landmark exhibition unites for the first time the John Singer
Sargent watercolors acquired by the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of
Fine Arts, Boston, in the early twentieth century. The culmination of a
yearlong collaborative study by both museums, John Singer Sargent Watercolors explores
the watercolor practice that has traditionally been viewed as a
tangential facet of Sargent’s art making. The ninety-three pieces on
display provide a once-in-a-generation opportunity to view a broad range
of the artist’s finest production in the medium."

I'm delighted to add that the museum gift store will have my novel, Portraits of an Artist, in stock and for sale during the exhibition.Thanks, Brooklyn!
