Abstract

Piece about Winslow Homer and the newly restored Prouts Neck studio where he created some of his greatest paintings and where he also created the myth of himself as a hermit. In reality, on Prouts Neck, he lived in close proximity to his brother and other residents of the summer colony that was developed by his father and brother. The author suggests that Homer's later paintings reveal his growing realization that wilderness existed more and more as an idea.
