Winslow Homer: American Vision, Close to Nature

July 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Winslow Homer’s illustrations, watercolors, and oil paintings are among the most powerful and expressive of late 19th-century American art. He depicted happy scenes of fashionable ladies promenading along the seashore and children frolicking in a meadow after school. But he also gave us disquieting images of isolation and danger. His marine paintings illustrating the untamed, elemental forces of nature are some of the most intense and affecting images he created. This talk by presenter Janet Mandel, Arts Educator on Thursday, July 27, from 7pm to 8:`5pm via Zoom, will acquaint you with this extraordinary American artist and many of his works.

Registration required: PenningtonLibrary.org/Homer
