Dulwich Picture Gallery - "Utterly absorbing" - Sargent: The Watercolours is open!

You may know John Singer Sargent for his society portraits, but in this exhibition we show the more delicate and joyous side to the artist, focusing on the vibrant watercolours he painted during his travels in Europe and the Middle East. Watch our preview videowith co-curator Richard Ormond for a taste of what to expect.
