This series is about the current restoration of Winslow Homer studio in Scarborough. 2012 is an exciting year for the Portland Museum of Art—it's the Year of Winslow Homer. In September, the Museum will open the newly restored Winslow Homer Studio along with the related exhibition Weatherbeaten: Winslow Homer and Maine.
I shot this series 2 weeks ago with a young decorator in charge of the job, Herb Clarke.
The Winslow Homer Studio, one of the most significant locations in the history of American art, is where the great American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived and painted many of his masterpieces from 1883 until his death. Purchased by the Portland Museum of Art in 2006, the renovated Winslow Homer Studio celebrates the artist's life, encourages scholarship on Homer, and educates audiences to appreciate the artistic heritage of Winslow Homer and Maine.
