Seductive, flamboyant and deeply revealing, John Singer Sargent’s magisterial painting, Mrs. Carl Meyer and her Children, depicts Adèle Meyer with her children Elsie Charlotte and Frank Cecil, and captures the world of a privileged family of English Jews who lived over century ago.
Jewish Museum curator Norman Kleeblatt brings us into the world of this remarkable work of art, on view in the US for the first time in over ten years at the Jewish Museum through Feb 5 in an exhibition which contextualizes the work with other family portraits, family photographs, personal correspondence, domestic memorabilia and satirical imagery from popular culture that relates to both the Meyer family and John Singer Sargent.Buy tickets/get more info now
