Boston’s Apollo

Episode 151: Today I talk to Nat Silver of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston Massachusetts. We talk about the Boston’s Apollo exhibition which features an unsung model of John Singer Sargent.

The exhibition is based on a series of Sargent’s sketches that the museum had in it’s archives. Nat and the team had to do some digging to find out who this model was. They unearthed some great discoveries.
