Fusco & Four is proud to announce that this year’s 23rd Annual Boston International Fine Art Show (BIFAS) will include three original Winslow Homer etchings adding to the growing collection of his works currently on display in and around Boston. The etchings will be on display all weekend and in the booth of Avery Galleries, a well renowned Pennsylvania based art gallery focused on American art (averygalleries.com). Both the Cape Ann Museum and the Harvard Art Museums are currently home to various works by the renowned marine painter. In the exhibit at the Cape Ann Museum (August 3, 2019—December 1, 2019) Homer’s origins as a marine painter are explored through his early paintings of the sea and other bodies of water. Harvard’s exhibit (August 31, 2019—January 5, 2020) takes a look at Homer’s work for a Civil War era illustrated periodical where he focused on scenes on and off the battlefield. For more information on these exhibits please visit capeannmuseum.org, or harvardartmuseums.org.
