Winslow Homer: An American Genius at the Parthenon
The Move Toward Abstraction
This exhibit will follow the life of the important American painter, Winslow Homer (1836 - 1910). Homer’s inventive and interesting elements of design will be investigated, for as he mastered techniques his design elements became simplified. Through this simplification Homer expressed the essence of a subject. Homer’s ”abstraction“ of subjects and design elements coincided with the world’s formal introduction to abstract art.
Oct. 7-Jan. 6
The sculptor of the Nashville Parthenon’s Athena statue will present his most recent and current sculptural work.
