James Abbott McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent may have never met, but their art careers took similar trajectories. Both left the U.S. to make their work overseas, and both shocked their contemporary art worlds with their paintings and oversized personalities. But how exactly did the beauty of their works break through traditional conventions to invent the modern art language? This is the story of two visionary artists who put American art on the international map and helped invent art of the 20th century.

Our artistic deep dive will include:
• A look at the lives and career choices of two iconic American artists
• Tales of scandal involving both artists, from the infamous Whistler libel case to the
searing story of the Peacock Room to the jolt of Madame X
• Dissecting Whistler and Sargent images to understand what made their works so
modern
• An understanding of how these in-demand artists were pivotal to the development of
celebrity culture

In the series:
Apr. 9: Whistler
Apr. 16: Sargent
