Malcolm Rogers, Ann and Graham Gund Director
From murals to watercolors, Boston boasts some of Sargent’s greatest masterpieces. Malcolm Rogers tells the fascinating story behind two of the artist’s most ambitious portraits of young women: the Boits, innocent, sheltered, and psychologically ambiguous; and the Wyndhams, sophisticated, socially prominent, and sexually emancipated. Rogers explores Sargent’s career, his ambitions and frustrations, and poses the question: Is Boston’s beloved Boit daughters the greater portrait?
