The dinner horn



The Paine Art Museums newest exhibit is Winslow Homer in America which starts February 14th and goes until May 31st. The exhibit features 125 original wood engravings by one of the great American nineteenth century painters and print makers.  He created dozens of images which depicted politics, war and everyday life in America from the late 1850’s to the mid 1870’s. After serving as a field correspondent in the Civil War, his war scenes are among the most powerful and accurate records of the Union troop experiences. When the war ended, Homer turned his attention to post war experiences.
