New Exhibition: Winslow Homer: Photography and the Art of Painting

an exciting new exhibit opens in November at the Brandywine River Museum of Art

Winslow Homer: Photography and the Art of Painting will examine the roles photography played in Homer’s evolving artistic practice. As a young artist for Harper’s Weekly during the Civil War, Homer utilized photographs as source material for some of his drawings. Alexander Gardner’s famous photograph of Lincoln’s first inauguration, for example, provided Homer with the pictorial information he needed to construct his own detailed view of the event.
