An Artist’s Legacy, Sargent, his Sister & their Friends.
Fri June 5 @ 10:00 am - Sun June 14 @ 5:00 pm
Following a very generous gift to the Ashmolean Museum of a group of works by John Singer Sargent, his sister Emily, and contemporaries Augustus and Gwen John and Phillip Wilson Steer, the first public showing has been kindly offered to Broadway Museum and Art Gallery.
The very existence of the Broadway Arts Festival springs from a celebration of the time John Singer Sargent and his friends spent in the village, when the iconic work ‘Carnation Lily, Lily, Rose’ was started in the grounds of Farnham House, to be completed the following year at Russell House, and now one of the best loved paintings in the Tate Gallery.
Open Tuesday – Sunday 10am to 5pm
Entrance fees to the museum – £5 (£10 per family)
Tickets cannot be purchased in advance for this exhibition – please pay entrance fees on the door.
