As one of the most sought-after portrait artists at the turn of the 20th century, John Singer Sargent traveled the world painting important figures and scenes. Sargent first exhibited his work at the Art Institute in 1890 and returned to Chicago often, thanks to local businessman and art collector Charles Deering. Collecting 100 of his works, "Chicago's Gilded Age" showcases the breadth of Sargent's talents and seeks to unravel his connections to our city's art scene at the dawn of the 1900s.
