About this item
This groundbreaking study focuses on John Singer Sargent’s sustained, yet largely overlooked, involvement with Chicago’s vibrant Gilded Age culture. Documenting the artist’s personal connections to the city and the prominence of his work in Chicago collections, Annelise K. Madsen explores Sargent’s various contributions to Chicago’s artistic life, including his long-standing participation in local exhibitions. With scholarly rigor, this volume also delves into the taste and scope of midwestern patronage at the turn of the century, offering valuable insights into Chicago’s civic and cultural ambitions. Richly illustrated, John Singer Sargent and Chicago’s Gilded Age is an original and engaging examination of the complex relationship between one of the most cosmopolitan artists of his generation and the city of Chicago.
