    Winslow Homer: Society and Solitude (2007, 113 min.) is a documentary profile by Steven J. Ross that follows the artist from his work as an illustrator in New York before the Civil War all the way into the new century, when he had become a reclusive painter of the Maine coast. The film is an engaging mix of art reproduction, location filming, and interviews with scholars--including Marc Simpson, curator of the Clark exhibition. "Homericana: Films of the Artist's Times and Places" is a free film series offered by the Clark in conjunction with its Winslow Homer exhibition. Film screenings will be shown Monday afternoons at 3 pm in July and August and will alternate each week between feature films set in Homer's era and an expansive documentary on his life and work.
