The Cape Ann Museum and Historic New England invite you to take a fresh look at Winslow Homer’s seaside paintings. Join Elizabeth Block, PhD, senior editor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for a discussion of Homer’s paintings within the context of women’s bathing, dress, and hair practices of the early 1870s and as an extension of the artist’s early magazine illustrations. Following the lecture, enjoy the waterfront Coolidge Point grounds. Light refreshments provided.

Presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Homer at the Beach: A Marine Painter’s Journey, 1869 – 1880, on view at the Cape Ann Museum from August 3 to December 1, 2019.
