Art Around Town: Winslow Homer @ The Clark

Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History

June 9, 2013 – September 8, 2013

Robert Sterling Clark declared Winslow Homer (1836–1910) to be among the greatest artists of the nineteenth century. Acting on this belief, Clark bought more than two hundred of Homer’s works and eventually owned more works by Homer than by any other artist. The breadth and ambition of Clark’s collection, more important than the large number of works it contains, make it the finest gathering of Homer’s art assembled by any individual since the artist’s death.
