You are watching a live video feed from a camera mounted on the roof of the restored Winslow Homer Studio at Prouts Neck, Maine, a small peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic about 12 miles south of the PMA.

The American artist Winslow Homer (1836–1910) enjoyed this ocean vista from the balcony of his studio, where he lived and worked from 1884 to his death. According to family members, Homer spent hours “wearing out the balcony” as he observed nature’s ever-changing spectacle along the rocky coast outside his studio. Inspired by the rugged beauty of this locale, he painted majestic seascapes of the surf crashing against the shore that are considered among the great masterpieces of American art. Visitors have the opportunity to walk in Winslow Homer’s footsteps and to experience his dramatic views with a guided tour of the Winslow Homer Studio.
