Mid-Late C20th - Painting
Winslow Homer - Force of Nature
Mon-Thu: 10-6pm; Fri: 10-9pm; Sat-Sun: 10-6pm
For the first time in the UK, we present an overview of Winslow Homer (1836–1910), the great American Realist painter who confronted the leading issues facing the United States, and its relationship with both Europe and the Caribbean world, in the final decades of the 19th century.
Homer’s career spanned a turning point in North American history. He lived through the American Civil War and the abolition of slavery, so-called Reconstruction, and war with the last colonial European power in the Americas, Spain.
With more than fifty paintings, covering over forty years of Homer’s career, 'Winslow Homer: Force of Nature' is part of a programme of exhibitions that introduce major American artists to a UK and European audience and follows on from our exhibitions about George Bellows and the Ashcan painters, Frederic Church and Thomas Cole.
Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.Tickets: £12.00 (Concession: £10.00 )
