DESCRIPTION

Four spectacular paintings by John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) are part of the renowned collection of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts.

Sterling Clark’s discerning eye led him to acquire several works by Sargent, including the monumental painting Fumée d’Ambre Gris, which Clark purchased in 1914. Though intimate in scale, Sargent’s Youthful Genius: Paintings from the Clark provides insight into a remarkably talented young artist, who achieved international acclaim by the time he turned thirty.

Sargent’s Youthful Genius: Paintings from the Clark is presented at the museum as part of a joint program with the Kimbell Art Museum, which will concurrently show the exhibition The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Clark. Both exhibitions are organized by the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Mass.
