Winslow Homer in England: A Folio of Notecards


In 1881, Homer, seeking fresh subjects and new ways of presenting them, settled in the English North Sea fishing village of Cullercoats where he was inspired by the close-knit community and the strength of spirit of the industrious women who he immortalized in many of his paintings from that period. Two works from the Portland Museum of Art's collection are featured in this folio of 10 blank notecards, The Breakwater, Cullercoats, 1882 and Looking out to Sea, Cullercoats, 1882. Envelopes included. Five each of two designs. 5 x 7 inches in size.
