Fleece Throw: San Giuseppe di Castello

San Giuseppe di Castello
John Singer Sargent, American, 1856-1925 

The different shades of the water, the brightness of the light and the dense urban architecture of Venice were elements that fascinated Sargent throughout his life. In this drawing, he turns a rather unspectacular neighborhood into a miraculous metaphor for the romantic appeal of Venice. His passion for the city apparently did not extend to its inhabitants: note, how little interest he showed in depicting the figures on the bridge. 

This throw features Sargent's San Giuseppe di Castello, located in the Blue Room of the Museum. The lap blanket's outside displays a phenomenally clear reproduction of Sargent's painting on plush silk-touch microfiber fleece and a Sherpa fleece underside.
