Winslow Homer Studio


From 1883 to 1910, the American painter Winslow Homer lived and worked in a coastal studio in Prouts Neck, Maine, where he created many of his masterpieces. In 2006, the PMA purchased the property and embarked on a six-year renovation project that restored the building to how it appeared during Homer’s life and, in 2012, opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Winslow Homer Studio Tours put you uniquely in touch with Maine’s artistic heritage, allowing you to walk the floors and balconies where Homer once walked, and to be inspired by the place that inspired one of America’s greatest painters. With its combination of cultural resonance, historical significance, and natural beauty, Winslow Homer Studio Tours offer a singular experience that you will remember for years to come and want to share with others.

Take a Winslow Homer Studio Tour and discover why this location is so crucial to our understanding of Winslow Homer, of American art—and, indeed, of Maine.
