Course Participant

Born in the same year, but from very different backgrounds, Sir John Lavery (1856-1941) and John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) were artists who both made a great contribution to art in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. We shall chart the progress of their work, from Lavery’s Irish roots to the Glasgow School and beyond, and from Sargent’s position as an American expatriate artist to society portrait painter and muralist.
