John Singer Sargent's enigmatic The Daughters of Edward Darley Boit serves as the major inspiration for self-taught Spanish artist Jorge R. Pombo’s latest series of paintings, Variations on Sargent’s Daughters. Pombo’s striking Variations reinterpret the historical painting, obscuring figure and form through fluid abstraction.
Variations on Sargent’s Daughters is Pombo’s first solo exhibition at Childs Gallery, though the artist has exhibited extensively internationally including solo and group shows in China, Italy, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK, with notable showings at the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne, the Museo del Duomo, Milan, and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice. Variations on Sargent’s Daughters will be on view November 18, 2021 through January 8, 2022, with a virtual artist talk at a date to be announced.
