Sargent, Sickert & Spencer
An exhibition focusing on three of the most original painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries: John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), Walter Sickert (1860-1942) and Stanley Spencer (1891-1959).
The Fitzwilliam’s holdings of paintings, watercolours and drawings by these artists are amongst the finest in the UK. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to explore these ‘Hidden Depths’ of the Museum’s collection and to see what united Sargent, Sickert and Spencer artistically and divided them stylistically.
Tue 8 December 2009 to Mon 5 April 2010
Mellon Gallery (Gallery 13)
