Event: Winslow Homer Exhibit, August 21

Come learn with BNC Hartford about one of America’s foremost painters of the 19th century. On August 21st, we will be embarking on our second BNC event of the year to the Mattatuck Museum, in Waterbury, to learn about Winslow Homer and view prints of his work. Homer, a prolific self-taught painter, produced work both commercially and privately. This exhibit contains around 100 select prints from engravings used for commercial print donated by David and Ann Jones, and will be accompanied by several paintings on loan from other Connecticut institutions. This overview of the artist’s work will be presented thematically, reflecting the events and concerns of the country during 19th century. Themes include the Civil War, domestic life, women’s roles, nature, and popular entertainment.

This event will give us an illuminating view into American history as well as an appreciation for a notable artist. After the tour please join us for lunch at the Signature Restaurant. The registration deadline is August 14!
