One thing’s for sure: Sargent was a master at gestural brushstrokes! This towering Spanish Madonna wears a shimmering halo and robes that cascade gold. Her outfit is completed not by meticulous details, but in the viewer’s imagination. Image: John Singer Sargent, A Spanish Madonna, about 1879, oil on panel.

Five things to do this weekend: April 20-22

“Berlin; or, The Part of You That Wants It: A Musical Comedy Love Story (Written by Accident)” world premiere at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Central Square Theater, 450 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square. General admission is $35.

    Five things to do this weekend: April 20-22
    Women in Comedy Festival all weekend at venues throughout Cambridge, Somerville, Medford and Boston. Ticket prices vary. This festival has exploded in its 10th year, drawing in partners such as HBO, Showtime, NBC and The Onion, and it's harder than ever to select items to highlight - surely headlining shows by Tig Notaro, Wanda Sykes and Emma Willmann qualify, but there's also a staggering run of standup, sketch, improv, live podcasts and workshops to attend.

It’s a yellow kind of day! 💛 The artist, Dewing, created a striking contrast between the precisely modeled face and arms, and the feathery brushstrokes of the dress. Isabella hung the painting in the Yellow Room, a setting perfectly attuned to the hue of the woman’s dress. Image: Thomas Wilmer Dewing, A Lady in Yellow, 1888, oil on panel.
