Sponsored by: Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England is co-organized by the Worcester Art Museum and the Milwaukee Art Museum. This exhibition is made possible through support from the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Lunder Foundation, and The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation. Additional support is provided by The Richard A. Heald Fund, the Michie Family Curatorial Fund, and the John and Ruth Adam, Jr. Exhibition Fund.
Developed around two iconic Homer paintings-WAM's The Gale (1883-93) and the Milwaukee Art Museum's Hark! The Lark (1882)-the exhibition "Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England" explores the artist's time in Cullercoats, England, in 1881 and 1882. Jointly coordinated by Worcester and Milwaukee, the exhibition features the most comprehensive group of oils made during or emerging directly from Homer's time abroad. Shown alongside comparative paintings by English artists, these works complicate our understanding of Homer's art as purely American in subject and style. Following its run in Worcester, the show will be on view at the Milwaukee Art Museum from March 2-May 10, 2018.
