While Fairmont Copley Plaza is named after painter John Singleton Copley, our hotel (and Boston) has another special connection to a famed artist: John Singer Sargent, one of the leading portrait painters of his era.
In the 1920s, Sargent painted several of his masterpieces while staying at The Copley Plaza (as the hotel was then named) like the sweeping murals at the Boston Public Library across the street. Sargent was often spotted dining in our Oval Ballroom with his well-known patron, Isabella Stuart Gardner.
The Museum of Fine Arts’ (MFA) “Fashioned by Sargent” exhibition explores the artist’s complex relationship with his often-affluent clients and their clothes. Alongside about 50 paintings by Sargent, over a dozen period garments and accessories shed new light on the relationship between fashion and this beloved artist’s creative practice.
On arrival, guests will be welcomed with the museum’s “Fashioned by Sargent” hardcover book by Erica E. Hirshler, Croll Senior Curator of American Paintings, MFA, who has published extensively on Sargent.
Stay where Sargent stayed, and visit the must-see exhibition from October 8, 2023–January 15, 2024. The MFA is a short 5-minute drive, or 20-minute walk, from Fairmont Copley Plaza.
