Winslow Homer: Four Views of Nature

November 22, 2008 – May 25, 2009

Museum: Freer Gallery of Art

Location: Ground Floor

Museum founder Charles Lang Freer considered renowned painter Winslow Homer to be one of his "miscellaneous Americans," a term Freer used for a group of artists whose works he admired but did not collect in great numbers. On view are three technically innovative watercolors and the monumental oil painting Early Evening, -- painted in 1881 in Cullercoats, England, and reworked in 1907 in his studio in Prouts Neck, Maine.
