Boston’s Apollo: Sargent’s model and hidden black nobility in American art

Boston’s Apollo, Thomas McKeller and John Singer Sargent, an exhibition at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, was meant to examine a contradiction of race and visibility. Its intended run, from 13 February to 17 May, was curtailed by the coronavirus outbreak. Fortunately, we are left with a handsome and well-illustrated catalog from Yale University Press.
