David Tatham, Professor Emeritus, Department of Art and Music Histories, Syracuse University, will speak on Winslow Homer's four-decade association with the Adirondacks. This free talk is the first in a series of three lectures that examine geographies important to Homer.The Adirondack region portrayed in Homer's works characterizes the development of both his highly original strengths as an artist and his shifting relationship to the natural world. This lecture examines Homer's Adirondack works in the Clark collection, which include the paintings Two Guides, Playing a Fish, and the rarely seen watercolor An October Day.
