Winslow Homer at the Dubuque Museum of Art

The Dubuque Museum of Art (DuMA) invites visitors to take a fresh look at its permanent collection. Since last Saturday, June 24, a rarely seen work by Winslow Homer (1836-1910), one of the most important painters of the 19th century, will make its debut at the DuMa. The painting will be on view in a new installation of masterpieces from the museum's 2,600-piece collection.

hasn't been seen in public since a 1996 exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This canvas is part of a theme that the artist explored on several occasions.
