We took the audio tour. I believe it really adds to the experience.
"Robert Sterling Clark declared Winslow Homer (1836–1910) to be among the greatest artists of the nineteenth century. Acting on this belief, Clark bought more than two hundred of Homer’s works and eventually owned more works by Homer than by any other artist. The breadth and ambition of Clark’s collection, more important than the large number of works it contains, make it the finest gathering of Homer’s art assembled by any individual since the artist’s death." - The Clark
Eastern Point is my favorite. Purchased in 1923. Sold in 1929 (stock market crash might have had something to do with that). Wisely, reacquired in 1954.
Inspired by a rescue Homer witnessed. It's an amazing painting.
