In this session we will take a close look at some of the museums’ rich holdings of watercolors by American artist Winslow Homer (1836–1910). Led by Martha Tedeschi, the Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot Director of the Harvard Art Museums, and Anne Driesse, senior conservator of works of art on paper, this seminar complements the special installation of Homer’s extraordinary 1890 painting Summer Night, on loan from the Musée d’Orsay, in Paris, and on view in gallery 2700.

The seminar will take place in the Art Study Center, Level 4.
