Winslow Homer's Seas at Prouts Neck, Maine

Landscapes Through Time
David travels to the rocky shores of Prouts Neck, Maine, where the famously enigmatic Winslow Homer lived for the last 27 years of his life and painted some of his most recognizable, theatrical, and iconic seascapes. David explores how this former acclaimed illustrator from Massachusetts became the emblem of Americana in paint and defined a simple, stubborn, self-reliant American spirit triumphing over European influence. David walks along the cliffs and visits Homer’s studio and home, a former carriage house on his family’s land, recently renovated by the Portland Museum of Art.
