Winslow Homer's Studio, Prouts Neck, ME

About This Project

During high school and college, I was introduced to mid-18th century American artists. I could not get enough of the genre art works of William Sydney Mount, Fitz Henry Lane, Winslow Homer and so many others. I don’t know which I liked better, the beautiful images or the narratives those artists created in them.

Of all those artists, the ones whom I liked the most also thought of themselves as visual story-tellers such as Winslow Homer, and Henry Farny. Both of these artists also served as famous illustrators for “Harper's Weekly”. The two Homer lithographs on the left are included in my personal collection of antique prints.

I have been traveling to Maine for the past 10 years to attend a miniature workshop in Castine and fell in love with Maine. As a result it was natural that I was drawn to create a roombox incorporating both the work of my favorite artist with a place that I find so inspiring.
