Winslow Homer: Making Art, Making History, an innovative exhibition of work by the nineteenth-century American artist, is the largest display from the Clark's extensive holdings in decades. While the objects on view encourage wonder at Homer's aesthetic achievement, the breadth of the collection also allows questions to be asked about relations among the works themselves, their place in the art world of the nineteenth century, and the role they play in helping us understand their era. The exhibition offers insights into the artist's achievement, raises questions about the variable nature of history, and documents the collection's own institutional past. Making Art, Making History showcases the range of Homer's work—oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, etchings, and one photograph, as well as approximately 120 wood engravings and other reproductions. With more than two hundred works, dating from 1857 to 1904, the Clark's deep holdings provide a variety of distinctive perspectives on this important American artist.
