Alumni, family, and friends are invited to join the chapter in viewing “Sargent and Spain” at the Legion of Honor. We will have a private, docent-led tour accompanied by audio headsets. Tickets will be valid for entry to exhibits at the Legion of Honor and DeYoung museums all day.

“Sargent and Spain” is described as:
Churches, coastlines, gardens, royal palaces, dancing—vibrant works by John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) immerse you in the rich culture of Spain. This exhibition, in its exclusive West coast stop, is the first to explore the influence of Spanish culture on Sargent’s dynamic visual practice. Celebrated as the society portraitist of his era, Sargent influenced a generation of American painters. His captivation with Spain, which developed over the course of seven visits taken from 1879 to 1912, resulted in a remarkable body of work. The exhibition presents an array of Sargent’s dazzling oils, watercolors, and drawings, along with never-before-exhibited photographs showcasing Spain’s people, architecture, and magnificent urban and rural landscapes.
