Exhibition - Winslow Homer: From Poetry to Fiction – The Engraved Works

Friday, Jul 30, 2021 from 10:00am to 4:00pm


Winslow Homer (1836-1910) is considered one of the most important artists of American life of the 1800s. He captured a cross section of American society that tells a story of triumph and tragedy in American history through his monochromatic engravings created during the pre-war years, the Civil War and the following decade. Featuring Homer’s early work that was produced in New York’s Hudson River Valley, this exhibition is accompanied by never-before-exhibited period photographs of his subjects. 
Join the Biggs Museum for an opening reception for From Poetry to Fiction and Inventing Illustration on Friday, July 2, 5 pm - 7 pm. Masks are required to be worn inside the Museum; light refreshments will be served outdoors to allow for a safe social gathering - weather permitting.
