Event Details

Winslow Homer, Part 2  (1 hour)
After Homer's return from England, he settled in Prout's Neck, Maine, in a cottage a stone's throw away from the ocean.  He traveled to some old and new locales that were or became favorite subject matter: Gloucester, the Adirondacks, and tropical places such as Florida, Cuba, and Bermuda.  He worked in both oil and water color,.  While the sle of his paintings allowed him to live comfortably, he did not make a fortune as did John Singer Sargent.  As for fame, that would have to wait until after his death.  The program ends with music accompanying a series of seascapes, many of the Maine coast, as well as his most famous seascape, Gulf Stream. 

Join Jack Brin for films and conversations about American art at  Prosser  Public  Library in the community room.  Jack Brin is an arts and music enthusiast and a former mathematics professor at Western New England College.
