    Winslow Homer

    I highly recommend The Clark Art Institute's latest exhibition: Winslow Homer. Homer's a lot of fun: Colorful, full of movement. And, I think, he's gay. Anyone have any insight into that?

    This thread'll probably get moved somewhere.

    It's possible that Winslow Homer was gay, but we don't know a whole lot about his personal life. He didn't answer personal questions, he never married, he lived in a Paris flat with another guy for 2 years, and painted lots of homoerotic art. But that doesn't make him necessarily gay (or bi either, for that matter).

    All those could be easily explained away. For example, Paul Gauguin and van Gogh roomed up, and neither is considered gay/bi (though that episode did end with Van Gogh dicing up his left ear). On the other hand, they could act as supporting evidence if we ever get some form of proof. A verified letter to a male lover, perhaps.

    It's sometimes difficult to pin down an good description of famous peoples' not-so-accepted sex lives. We only know the ones we do because they didn't hide it or sucked at hiding it (Pyotr Tchaikovsky), or were publicly outed (Oscar Wilde; Alan Turing), or alluded to it in their works (Walt Whitman; Gertrude Stein posthumously). Or sometimes private correspondence reveals it.

    As it stands now, I wouldn't personally speculate further about Homer when there are far more contentious sexuality debates.

    Homer's closest companion in the final years of his life was an African-American man, Lewis Wright, who worked as his servant and lived at his Prout's Neck, Maine estate from 1895 to 1910. There are indications that some of Homer's acquaintances were disconcerted by the apparent closeness of his friendship with Wright. While most "negative" reactions involved race, other "unmentionable" factors may also have been involved.

    Of course he was a homo.

    Winslow Homer has always been regarded as one of America's foremost 19th century artists. Please consult the same website as above:

    Look up Thomas Eakins and John Singer Sargent - fit the same profile.
