Winslow Homer Lecture Series: Homer and the North Sea

November 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$10 – $20
Winslow Homer (1836–1910), Tynemouth Beach, 1883. Watercolor on paper. The James Collection – Promised Gift to the Cape Ann Museum.


Presented by Elizabeth Athens, University of Connecticut

This talk examines the influence of the time Homer spent in Cullercoats, England, and how it influenced his portrayal of the sea. While his earlier works cast the coast more benignly as a place for leisure or industry, his later canvases present the sea as a site of struggle between humanity and the natural world.

This program is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter’s Journey, 1869 – 1880.

Cost is $10 for Museum members; $20 nonmembers (includes admission). Tickets available online at Eventbrite or by calling (978)283-0455 x10.
