This talk by Curator Tracee Glab will take a close look at one of the FIA’s most beloved paintings Garden Study of the Vickers Children by American artist John Singer Sargent. At first glance, the painting may appear to be just a simple portrait of the English siblings Dorothy and Vincent Vickers, but the circumstances surrounding the portrait commission, including the details of a scandal involving the artist, reveal there’s more to explore.
