Brandywine River Museum of Art will present Winslow Homer: Photography and the Art of Painting through February 17, 2019. Winslow Homer: Photography and the Art of Painting is drawn from the BCMA’s incomparable holdings of Homer’s art and archival materials, and from more than twenty major lending institutions, including the Addison Gallery of American Art.
A little-recognized aspect of the work of Winslow Homer—one of America’s most iconic artists—is the relationship between his painting and photography, and the role of the relatively new medium on his approach to image making.
The exhibition will feature approximately fifty photographs created or collected by Homer and approximately fifty paintings, prints, watercolors, and drawings from all major periods of the artist’s career. A selection of the artist’s Civil War-themed images and work from his activity in the Adirondacks, England and Prout’s Neck will be considered in relation to Homer’s interaction with photography.
A catalogue published by Yale University Press will accompany the exhibition. Don’t miss out on the chance to see Winslow Homer: Photography and the Art of Painting!
Even though U City Flats, the premier apartments in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
