Sarah Cash, Associate Curator of American and British Paintings at the National Gallery of Art, explores the work John Singer Sargent produced during his three-month sojourn to Florida in early 1917. Working in Ormond Beach and the Miami area, the artist produced a remarkable body of watercolors depicting flora and fauna along with the architecture, gardens, and beaches of Vizcaya, James Deering’s seasonal home. Sargent’s visit to Florida served as a winter respite from his extended stay in Boston, where he was working on murals for the Boston Public Library and the Museum of Fine Arts.
