Sargent’s Women & Afternoon Tea with Author Donna M. Lucey at The Fish
Tue June 12, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm
We are thrilled to welcome New York Times best-seller and award-winning author Donna M. Lucey to this year’s festival to talk about her seductive, multi-layered, new book Sargent’s Women: Four Lives Behind the Canvas.
In what the New York Times describes as a “rollicking snow globe version of an almost unimaginable world of wealth” Lucey illuminates the lives of four headstrong women painted by the high society portraitist John Singer Sargent.
“Lucey’s superlative group portrait, rendered in crystal-clear prose, is spring-fed by her immersion in vast archives of letters and diaries, her pilgrimages to the extraordinary places that shaped her subjects’ lives, and her keen insights into what drove these women to break out of their gilded cages.” Booklist’s review of ‘Sargent’s Women: Four Lives Behind the Canvas’
Ticket price of £25 includes talk plus delicious afternoon tea and glass of Pimms
