One of the most significant locations in the history of American art, the Winslow Homer 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 Studio is owned and operated by the Portland Museum of Art.
