John Singer Sargent Drawing at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts, Paris

While in Paris earlier this month, Rob arranged for The Art League group to see a special collection in the Ecole de Beaux-Arts school gallery. The school’s teaching and influence go back over 350 years. A highlight was seeing this gorgeous study which was drawn by John Singer Sargent while he attended there while studying for Duran. He won a top prize for the drawing in 1877. We also saw the cast he had drawn from (or a copy of it).
