The presentation will focus on the extraordinary talents of John Singer Sargent narrated by Brian Healey.

John Singer Sargent was an American expatriate artist, considered the leading portrait
painter of his generation. He created roughly 900 oil paintings and more than 2,000 watercolours, as well as countless sketches and charcoal drawings.

Few artists can match the achievements of this American artist who trained in Paris and spent much of his life depicting the world of the Belle Epoque, from leisurely days on the Grand Canal, to the society women of New York.

Brian Healey is an artist completely self-taught but from a very artistic family background. To consolidate his interest in style and architecture he studied for a Diploma in Interior Design. Formally he was a senior modern language teacher in an independent grammar school for many years, he also enjoyed a successful parallel career since the 1980s as a professional
artist and interior designer.

Since 2006 Brian has been regularly appointed to a number of prestigious ocean and river cruise lines, either as a resident artist, guest lecturer on art history or destination speaker for more than forty countries. Most recently this work has successfully extended to art guiding through important towns and museums in France, Belgium, Holland and Spain.
