Winslow Homer Studio

Purchased by the PMA in 2006, the Winslow Homer Studio is one of the most significant locations in the history of American art. Located along the rugged coast of Prout's Neck, Maine, the Studio is where great American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived and painted many of his masterpieces from 1883 until his death. Now, fully renovated and restored, the Studio is open for guided tours through the PMA.
