Homer Exhibit in Western Massachusetts

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass., is showcasing its Winslow Homer collection through January 16. The exhibit includes six images of Maine, five of them depicting Prout's Neck in Scarborough, the sixth an unidentified seascape.
"Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History," displays about 170 works from the Clark's extensive collection of Homer's engravings, etchings, watercolors and oil paintings, collected by Robert Sterling Clark between 1916 and 1955. The show will not travel elsewhere.

"In all these realms, he achieved not only the highest levels of quality, but he altered what it meant to work in these mediums," said Marc Simpson, the Clark's curator of American art. [Link]
