Two Masters of the Brush: Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent      Lottery

4/17, 4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/15

Five Sessions

Let’s probe the rich collections of art housed at the Clark by two of our country’s most

revered and famous 19th-century artists, Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent. We’ll

explore up close the full range of Homer’s art, from early to late, from powerful oils to

masterful watercolors, from wood engravings to forceful etchings. Sargent’s vision—his

portraits and more personal efforts— will be less inclusive because of the nature of the

Clark’s holdings, but still revealing. Two of the five sessions will be held in the Print Room

to study prints, watercolors, and drawings.


Due to the popularity of Mr. Brooks’ courses, he is generously offering the course twice this

spring: W102 is for the morning session. LOTTERY: 14
