Lecture: Winslow Homer, Ben Shahn, and American Genre Painting

Thursday, May 3, 2018, 6:15 PM

Winslow Homer has frequently been credited as an inspiration by early twentieth-century American modernist painters, who cite the abstract, expressive qualities of his late paintings. Yet American social realists also saw the artist as a kindred spirit, seeing in his depictions of laborers a way to advance social reform. Take a closer look at the influence of Homer’s works on generations of artists, with John Fagg, lecturer, Department of English Literature, and director, American and Canadian Studies Centre, University of Birmingham.
