Winslow Homer Press Kit

On September 25, 2012, the Portland Museum of Art (PMA) opened the Winslow Homer Studio to the public for the first time. One of the most significant locations in the history of American art, the Studio, located at Prouts Neck, Maine, is where the great American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived and painted many of his masterpieces from 1883 until his death. A National Historic Landmark, the renovated Winslow Homer Studio celebrates the artist’s life, encourages scholarship on Homer, and educates audiences to appreciate the artistic heritage of Winslow Homer and Maine. Visitors experience an extraordinary opportunity to walk in Homer’s footsteps and to see the same dramatic views of sea and sky that influenced his artistic vision.
