Winslow Homer’s Life on the Coast of Maine: Recent Discoveries

Dive deeper into the PMA’s National Historic Landmark and prominent touchpoint in the history of American art: the Winslow Homer Studio. Located at Prouts Neck, Maine, the renovated studio is where American artist Winslow Homer (1836–1910) painted many of his masterpieces from 1883 until his death. In this lecture, Dr. O’Leary will discuss the vast impact the famous Cliff Walk had on Homer, as well as its position in Maine’s cultural and natural heritage, through scholarship and invaluable insight gained during the painstaking restoration process.
