Coming Away With Winslow Homer

Tuesday, December 5, 2023

Winslow Homer captures the very spirit of rocky coastlines with their backdrops of dramatic blustery skies and shimmering sands. His paintings have a rugged authenticity, emphasizing the dynamic struggle between humanity and the natural world. They illustrate a forthrightness and a direct, comprehensive way of telling a story – an American story – the strength and nobility of working men and women in their timeless heroic pose against “horizons both beckoning and foreboding.” This program will survey the life and art of perhaps the greatest American painter of the nineteenth century, best known for his seascape and maritime works. Presented by Professor Karri Fritz-Klaus of Cornerstone History Symposium. Join us for the third lecture in a five part series, “The Great Awakening: Painters of America.” Mark your calendars for the remaining presentations (1/9: Edward Hopper, 2/6: Wolf Kahn). Free to attend. No registration required.
