In Conversation: Richard Ormond and Teresa Carbone

Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 7 p.m.
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

John Singer Sargent was a portraitist to royalty, a dazzling watercolorist, an obsessive traveler, and an accomplished pianist and chess player. Join us for a conversation with Richard Ormond, Sargent’s grandnephew and one of the foremost authorities on the artist and the man. Coauthor of the exhaustive catalogue raisonné of Sargent’s works and contributor to the catalogue for the exhibition John Singer Sargent Watercolors, Ormond will share his unparalleled knowledge of Sargent’s life and art with Teresa Carbone, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of American Art, and cocurator of the exhibition.

Tickets are $12, which includes Museum admission and a tour, and are available at www.museumtix.com or at the door. Museum Members receive free admission; please call the Membership Hotline at (718) 501-6326 for reservations.
