Event description
Winslow Homer Lecture Series: Presented by Elizabeth Athens, University of Connecticut

About this Event

This talk examines the influence of the time Homer spent in Cullercoats, England, and how it influenced his portrayal of the sea. While his earlier works cast the coast more benignly as a place for leisure or industry, his later canvases present the sea as a site of struggle between humanity and the natural world.

This program is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter’s Journey, 1869 – 1880.

Cost is $10 for Museum members; $20 nonmembers (includes admission).

EXHIBITION RELATED PROGRAMS This lecture is the first in a series of four lectures offered in conjunction with Homer at the Beach. In addition, a two-day scholarly symposium, walking tours, sailing excursions, extended viewing hours, CAM members events and children’s programs are also scheduled.
