A Homer for the Clark

The Clark recently received the gift of a significant, rare commissioned portrait by Winslow Homer. Charles Prentice Howland (1878), an oil painting that has never been publicly exhibited, was donated to the Clark by the sitter’s granddaughter Susan Montgomery Howell. The painting is now on view in the Clark’s galleries.  See the New York Times coverage here.

Sixty-three prints date from 1832 to 1971
