Henry James and American Painting Closing September 10 2017

I wanted to be sure to let you know of the last few days of this wonderful exhibit at The Morgan Library and Museum of Henry James. John Singer Sargent is one of my favorite painters, and this exhibit allows you to view in person (which is always so fabulous) his works of art. 

From the Morgan's website: 

Henry James and American Painting is the first exhibition to explore the author’s deep and lasting interest in the visual arts and their profound impact on the literature he produced.  Offering a fresh perspective on the master novelist, the show reveals the importance of James’s friendships with American artists such as John La Farge (1835–1910), John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), and James McNeill Whistler (1834–1903). While the author decided early on that the pictorial arts were not to be the arena in which he would work, the painterly quality of  his writing has enthralled readers for over a century.

Co-curated by acclaimed novelist Colm Tóibín and Declan Kiely, head of the Morgan’s Department of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, the exhibition includes a rich and eclectic selection of more than fifty paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, photographs, manuscripts, letters, and printed books from two dozen museums and private collections in the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland. Together they weave an evocative story of fascinating artistic intersections.
