Renowned artiste David Dunlop takes audiences on a tour mixed with art, history and travel to look at those masterpiece paintings and the inspirations behind them.

David discusses Sargent’s itinerant childhood with expatriate parents, a Philadelphia doctor and free spirited mother who escaped the tragedy of the death of their first born child by traveling to Europe – becoming eternal tourists. Sargent was born in Florence, and David explores his early artistic training in Italy and in France, where he studied with the famed Carolus-Duran.
