Whistler, Sargent, and Steer: Impressionists in London from Tate Collectionsby Tate Britain
Synopses & Reviews
This selection of masterworks by the three artists reveals the stylistic links that give evidence of their shared aesthetic lineage. Essays by Tate curator David Fraser Jenkins and art historian Avis Berman provide insight into their lives and works within the cultural milieu of fin-de-siecle London, including the experiences of the young and somewhat eccentric aesthete W. Graham Robertson.
