Details

Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington will reveal connections between artistic themes and techniques used by acclaimed American artists Winslow Homer (1836-1910) and Frederic Remington (1861-1909) through 60 artworks.


Born a generation apart, both artists succeeded in capturing the quintessential American spirit through works of art at the turn of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, an era of growing industrialization and notions of the closing of the American western frontier. Homer, who was considered the most original painter of his time, prospered by creating masterful depictions of the Eastern Seaboard, while Remington became famous for his iconic representations of the American West. The work of these two self-taught artists continues to be celebrated as independent, innovative, and homegrown.
