Art exhibition review: Sargent and Fashion at Tate Britain 22 February – 7 July 2024

Today, I went to see a special preview of the latest exhibition Sargent and Fashion at Tate Britain celebrating the timeless style and artistic genius of the great American portrait painter, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). I’m a big fan of Sargent’s work. I saw another big show of his paintings back in 2006. Seeing some of those awesome paintings again yesterday made me super happy. If you’re into art or fashion (or both!), you’re in for a treat. Sargent is known for his breathtaking portraits, but less as a stylist ante litteram. From luxurious velvet dresses to opulent opera cloaks, this display is like stepping into a glamorous time machine.

The exhibition shows off Sargent’s talent for not just painting, but also styling his subjects. Imagine being able to step back in time and wear those exquisite garments every day!
