Abstract

A look at the career of artist Winslow Homer on the centennial of his death. His status as a great marine painter was secured after his move to Maine in 1883 and his self-imposed exile on Prouts Neck. There he cultivated his reputation as a recluse and achieved financial and artistic freedom. Homer's studio was sold to the Portland Museum of Art in 2006 and in June, the PMA mounted "Winslow Homer and the Poetics of Place," an exhibit that will run through September 6.
