A View From the Shore: Winslow Homer’s Impressions of the Coast

Jan. 14–March 22, 2020

Winslow Homer’s interest in depicting the northern Atlantic seaside and surrounding communities began well before his now famous marine paintings of the later 19th century. A collection of over forty prints from his work as a magazine illustrator are featured in this show. It traces Homer’s development as an artist known for his ability to dramatically depict people, objects, places, manners, and customs his viewers could relate to and appreciate. An exhibition organized by the Syracuse University Art Galleries.
