North Atlantic Drift: Winslow Homer and French Painting
This lecture by Erica E. Hirshler, Croll Senior Curator of American Paintings for the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, explores Winslow Homer’s achievements in the context of late nineteenth-century America’s taste for French art. Homer’s independence and self-imposed distance from leading art centers cause him to be perceived as a self reliant, rugged American artist free from outside influences. But Homer was influenced by the art world, particularly the painters of the French Barbizon School.
