Review 2019/20 Season

Our third talk of our 2019/2020 season and the first talk of 2020, was on Alfred Hitchcock and was held on January 15th at the Garrison Library.

Last weeks talk on the 19th February was on John Singer Sargent, Master of the Society Portrait.
 
I hadn’t really taken much interest in the portrait painter John Singer Sargent before Mary Alexander’s illustrated talk. Her knowledge, love and enthusiasm about her subject bought his work alive. She lead us through his life and work with a brilliant display of slides of him and his many sitters for  his vibrant portraits.
The talk in the Map room of the Garrison Library was well attended with members and guests.
