Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter's Journey, 18691880 at Cape Ann Museum
in Gloucester, Massachusetts, from August 3 through December 1

Cape Ann Museum
Winslow Homer, Children on the Beach, 1873, oil on canvas.

Starting August 3, Cape Ann Museum is showing Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter's Journey, 18691880 through December 1. This exhibition features 50 original works by well-known artist Winslow Homer. Homer exhibited his first picture of the sea in 1869 as a New York illustrator and spent the next eleven years traveling widely across the Eastern seaboard. His favored locations, which he returned to often, were Gloucester and other parts of Cape Ann. On Cape Ann, Homer made his first watercolors and found his calling in marine painting. In Gloucester, in 1880, he began the most productive season of his life, painting more than 100 beautiful works. Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter's Journey, 18691880 celebrates the 150th anniversary Homer's first painting of the sea by placing his early works in their original, historical settings for the first time. His paintings capture the sea in all its forms, from wild, stormy rapids to slow, clear summer days at the beach. There will be many events in conjunction with Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter's Journey, 18691880, including talks, tours and sunset cruises, a list of which can be found here. Cape Ann Museum is located at 26 Pleasant Street in Gloucester, Massachusetts, and is open TuesdaySaturday 10:00 a.m.5:00 p.m. and Sunday 1:004:00 p.m. For more information, please visit capeannmuseum.org/exhibitions/homer-beach.
