Winslow Homer: Visions of Change
Just in time for a major retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art opening in April, 2022, join Classi Lectures and Rena Tobey for an in-depth look at the works and career of master artist Winslow Homer.
As American Art in the 1800s sought to define American identity, Homer propelled this introspective gaze into profound new insights with a subtle and clarion voice. Beginning with the American Civil War, Homer teased out the complexities of everyday life in a radically changing world. Maturing as an artist, his paintings offered compelling commentary about how the war changed roles for women and for men, then elevated those insights into images of epic battles with nature. Along the way, we will consider the elusive man behind the point-of-view of his paintings.
Please note time changed from 11am to 2pm!
