Sargent's Daughters opened in November 2013 on New York’s Lower East Side. The gallery's focus is on contemporary art that has a strong historical lineage while challenging current aesthetic conventions. Sargent's Daughters takes its name from the painter John Singer Sargent, who was an innovator working in a traditional medium. Accordingly, the gallery interest is in artists whose work combines the same qualities of tradition and cutting edge.
In addition to solo exhibitions by emerging artists and mid-career artists, the gallery programs two-person and small group exhibitions to create new conversations within the context of each artist's work. Sargent's Daughters produces artist catalogues to further the discourse of contemporary art.
