Weatherbeaten Exhibition Catalogue


This beautifully illustrated catalogue celebrates Homer's legacy at Prouts Neck, and documents the Portland Museum of Art's six-year conservation project to preserve the Winslow Homer Studio, the former carriage house in which Homer lived and worked. Photographs of the studio and site, never before open to the public, highlight views that are recognizable as the subject of so many of Homer's paintings. Essays by leading scholars examine his iconic masterpieces; his artistic development in Prouts Neck; the architecture of his studio; his relationship to French painting; and the full range of his marine paintings.

“A vivid survey of his work from those years when the Maine coast served as Homer’s muse.”
—Dana Jennings, New York Times

Published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name, which ran at the PMA September 22 — December 30, 2012.
