Selections from the Museum's rich collection of works by Winslow Homer (1836–1910) are on view in the Lee Gallery, just inside the newly opened State Street Corporation Fenway Entrance. From a childhood drawing through his late seascapes in oil, the exhibition includes designs for illustrations from popular periodicals like Harper’s Weekly, paintings, watercolors, and rarely seen etchings. Among the themes featured are images from the Civil War, paintings of childhood and leisure from the 1870s, and seascapes from the 1880s until just before Homer’s death in 1910. "Winslow Homer: American Scenes" offers an extraordinary glimpse at the artist’s working method in a variety of media and for a variety of audiences throughout his career.
