Program Type:Art Lecture
Winslow Homer was a Romantic American painter whose art appeals to a broad audience. The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently considered Homer's art through the lens of conflict, a theme that permeates his art, from images of the Civil War and Reconstruction that examined the effects of the conflict on the landscape, soldiers and enslaved people to dramatic scenes of rescue and hunting. He also painted monumental seascapes and dazzling tropical works in South Florida and the Bahamas. The Gulf Stream, Homer's iconic painting is his best known work. This presentation will look at Homer's life and art.
