Myth Makers: the Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington
Portland Museum of Art, Portland, Maine
September 25 – November 29, 2020
This fall Watching The Breakers - a High Sea by Winslow Homer travelled to The Portland Museum of Art to be part of their exhibition Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington. The exhibition at the Portland Museum of art was the second of three legs of this travelling exhibition, and the only one in which the Arkell Museum had a painting.
This exhibition began in Denver, Colorado at the Denver Museum of Art in an exhibition entitled Natural Forces Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington on view (and subsequently on hold due to the pandemic) from June 26, 2020–September 7, 2020.
The third leg of the exhibition brings Homer and Remington's work to Fort Worth, Texas to the Amon Carter Museum of American Art on view from December 22, 2020–February 28, 2021.
As the Amon Carter Museum states the exhibition has American icon Winslow Homer, famous ocean painter, joining Frederic Remington, legendary cowboy artist, for Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, the first exhibition to explore the unexpected resonances and moments of convergence between the themes, artistic sensibilities, and technical processes of these two artists. Homer and Remington were touted by turn-of-the-century critics as artists whose work reinforced an American identity rooted in action, independence, and communion with the outdoors. While both artists actively cultivated this reputation, the correlation between these two icons has never been considered in depth due to the perceived differences in their subject matter.
