Movie Info

After the First World War had shattered the glib excesses of the Gilded Age and ushered in modernism, artist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was dismissed as a shallow, commercialized portraitist who pandered to vain aristocrats. In more recent years, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in Sargent's sumptuous works. Director Jackson Frost argues, in this compelling and persuasive documentary, that Sargent is one of the most important and talented artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries -- a painter who uniquely captures the grace and splendid joie de vivre of his era. Frost further examines the full range of Sargent's career, including lesser-known landscapes, murals, and his depictions of the horrors of the war. A great find for art lovers, this exciting look at the career of a master was shot in high-definition for the most vibrant, eye-popping images possible.
