High Cliff, Coast of Maine
- Winslow Homer, born Boston, MA 1836-died Prout's Neck, ME 1910
- Publication Label
- Winslow Homer was known for his robust depictions of nature. In High Cliff, Coast of Maine, the ocean wages a mighty and relentless assault on a rocky cliff at Prout's Neck, one of the artist's favorite spots on the coast. Both the two small figures at the upper right and the tight composition heighten the viewer's sense of the powerful surf.
