Boston's Apollo Exhibition Poster

In 1916, John Singer Sargent (1856–1925) met Thomas Eugene McKeller (1890-1962) a young African American elevator attendant at Boston’s Hotel Vendome. McKeller became the principal model for Sargent’s murals in the new wing of the Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, among the painter’s most ambitious works. Sargent’s nude studies and sketches from this project attest to a close collaboration between the two men that unfolded over nearly ten years. 

The Boston's Apollo exhibition opens new avenues into artist-model relationships and transforms our understanding of Sargent’s iconic American paintings.
