From Sarah Drake’s article for Hamptons ArtHub:
This exhibition features large-scale canvases portraying young male athletes at the peak of physical fitness. Bruce Sargeant is known for works that celebrate and idealize the male form. Hidden from the public for more than half a century, the works on view were located by Mark Beard, who was able to arrange for their return from all over the globe. Beard—an accomplished painter and sculptor in his own right—has spent more than two decades researching and collecting his great uncle’s works and bringing them to light.
