      1919 Recreated: A Gallery Showing

      Gloucester’s historic Sargent House celebrates its 100th anniversary as a museum with "1919 Recreated: A Gallery Showing," an exhibit of works by many of the artists who participated in the original 1919 exhibit which launched the museum. As in 1919, the new exhibition brings together works by John Singer Sargent, Theresa Bernstein, Childe Hassam and others. More than 25 works will be shown, many on loan from Rockport Art Association & Museum, the exhibit's major contributor.The centerpiece of the exhibit will be a charcoal drawing by John Singer Sargent of his cousin Charles Sprague Sargent, the botanist who led Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum for more than 50 years, and who founded the Sargent House Museum with Universalist minister Levi Powers and William Sumner Appleton, founder of SPNEA (the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, now Historic New England). John Singer Sargent donated the drawing of his cousin to the Sargent House Museum for the 1919 exhibit.Admission to the gallery exhibit is free for museum members and $5 for non-members.
