Winslow Homer in the Clark Collection
By Alexandra R. Murphy with contributions by Rafael Fernandez and Jennifer Gordon
Winslow Homer was one of Robert Sterling Clark’s favorite painters, and he is the artist best represented at the Institute in all the media in which he worked: painting, watercolor, drawing, etching, and wood engraving. Sterling and Francine Clark’s love of the outdoors no doubt drew them to Homer, whose fascination with the power and beauty of nature can be seen in many of the oils and watercolors they collected. Clark bought his first Homer, Two Guides, in 1916, and he continued to acquire the artist’s work throughout his life.
Published in conjunction with an exhibition celebrating the 150th anniversary of Homer’s birth, this catalogue provides an extensive look at Winslow Homer within the Clark collection. Together the paintings and watercolors, drawings and magazine illustrations convey the breadth and diversity of this collection as a whole.
