Winslow Homer Studio

Winslow Homer Studio
The Winslow Homer Studio is where the great American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910) lived and painted many of his masterpieces from 1884 until his death.
 
Winslow Homer first discovered Prouts Neck, Maine, with his parents and two brothers in 1875. When Winslow Homer decided to relocate permanently from New York City, where he had lived for more than 20 years, to Prouts Neck, he hired John Calvin Stevens, a Portland architect and leading proponent of the Shingle Style, to convert a carriage house into his residence and studio. Perched on the rocky coast and commanding panoramic vistas of the Atlantic ocean, this 1,500-square-foot structure served as Homer’s primary residence and workspace from 1884 until his 1910 death. From the Studio’s second-story balcony and from daily walks along the shore, Homer drew inspiration for his celebrated late marine paintings from the crashing surf and ever-changing weather along the Maine coast.
