Prof. Betsy Athens will be presenting at the Cape Ann Museum, as part of their Homer at the Beach exhibition and programming.
Winslow Homer and the North Sea, Saturday, November16 at 2:00 p.m.
This talk examines the influence of Homer’s time in Cullercoats, England, on 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 Cape Ann Museum program is part of a larger collaboration of museums across the New England area highlighting Homer and his national and regional impact. Here, for example is a photo of Professor Athens’ groundbreaking 2017 exhibition catalogue Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England featured at the Harvard Art Museum as part of their exhibition promotion.
