The studio overlooking the Atlantic Ocean where painter Winslow Homer produced some of his most notable work opened to the public last week following a multiyear, multimillion-dollar renovation by the Portland Museum of Art. Homer lived in the studio from 1883 until his death in 1910. The museum bought the building in 2006 from Homer’s great-grandnephew. The former carriage house with a balcony provided inspiration for many of Homer’s seascapes.
