For the first time, explore John Singer Sargent's fascination with Spain as seen in stunning landscapes, architectural views, figure studies, and scenes of everyday life.

American artist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) experienced Spain, including the picturesque island of Majorca, as a source of rejuvenation and inspiration. Sargent and Spain features scores of the artist's dazzling watercolors, oil paintings, and drawings, from landscapes and seascapes to architectural studies, scenes of everyday life, and sympathetic portraits of the Roma and other local people he encountered. Immersing himself in the country's rich culture, he studied Spanish masters old and new, lavishing particular attention on works by Diego Velázquez in the Prado. He rendered the distinctive architecture of the Alhambra as well as other palaces and churches, and he captured lively scenes of ports and villages. Intrigued by Spanish dance and music, Sargent created dynamic views of flamenco and the famous dancer La Carmencita. A map and an illustrated chronology document the artist's seven trips to and travels through Spain. This handsome book showcases, for the first time, Sargent's captivation with Spain and the remarkable works of art now associated with it.
