    The Whales of August (1987, 91 min.) begins with a sepia sequence of young women of Homer's time on the Maine coast, and dissolves to sixty years later, when two elderly sisters still live in their family home. Lillian Gish, Bette Davis, and Vincent Price star in this moving and gently satiric film from Lindsay Anderson. "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, alternating each week between feature films set in Homer's era and an expansive documentary on his life and work.
