Winslow Homer:  From Poetry to Fiction – The Engraved Works

January 22 – March 19, 2017 at The Butler Trumbull Branch in Howland Township

Winslow Homer From Poetry to Fiction – The Engraved Works is an exhibition comprised of Homer’s early engravings with never before exhibited or published vintage photographs, all related to Homer’s post-war subjects.

This national touring exhibition consists of 230 original monochromatic wood engravings by Winslow Homer, arguably the most popular artist and illustrator of nineteenth century America, and one of the most important American artists of all time.  The exhibition focuses on his early work from his time as an apprentice in Boston to a successful illustrator and painter in the mid-19th century.

Winslow Homer From Poetry to Fiction is a national touring exhibition organized by Contemporary and Modern Print Exhibitions of Laguna Niguel, California.  Reilly Rhodes, curator of the collection is the author of a new book Winslow Homer From Poetry to Fiction—The Engraved Works, that will be available later this year.

A Meet-the-Curator Opening Reception and Gallery Talk will be held for the general public and media at The Butler Trumbull Branch Sunday, January 22, 2017 from 1-3 pm.  Admission is free and ample free parking is available on premise.

“Artists should never look at pictures, but should stutter in a language of their own.” – Winslow Homer
