Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, featuring 60 artworks, will reveal connections between artistic themes and techniques used by the two acclaimed American artists.

Born a generation apart, both artists succeeded in capturing the quintessential American spirit through works of art at the turn of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, an era of growing industrialization and notions of the closing of the American western frontier. Winslow Homer (1836-1910), who was considered the most original painter of his time, prospered by creating masterful depictions of the Eastern Seaboard, while Frederic Remington (1861-1909) became famous for his iconic representations of the American West. The work of these two self-taught artists continues to be celebrated as independent, innovative, and homegrown.

Natural Forces is co-organized and co-curated by a team of four curators, including the DAM’s Thomas Brent Smith, Curator of Western American Art and Director of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art, and Jennifer Henneman, Associate Curator of Western American Art; Diana Greenwold, Associate Curator of American Art at the Portland Museum of Art; and Maggie Adler, Curator at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. It will debut at the DAM before traveling to the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine, and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas.

A 225-page exhibition catalog, published in collaboration with Yale Publishing, will be available in The Shop at the Denver Art Museum and online. National leading scholars contributing to the publication include Smith and Henneman, along with Adam Gopnik, staff writer for The New Yorker, Maggie Adler, Diana Greenwold, and Claire Barry, Director of Conservation at the Kimbell Art Museum.

Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington (Fuerzas naturales: Winslow Homer y Frederic Remington) revelará, por medio de 60 obras de arte, las conexiones entre técnicas y temas artísticos usados por los aclamados artistas estadounidenses Winslow Homer (1836-1910) y Frederic Remington (1861-1909).

Los artistas nacieron en distintas generaciones y lograron capturar con éxito el espíritu estadounidense por excelencia a través de obras de arte a finales del siglo XIX y principios del XX, una era de creciente industrialización y de ideas acerca del fin de la frontera del oeste estadounidense. Homer, considerado el pintor más original de su época, prosperó al crear representaciones maestras de la costa este, mientras que Remington se hizo famoso por sus representaciones icónicas del oeste estadounidense. La obra de estos dos artistas autodidactas continúa conmemorándose como independiente, innovadora y nacional.

Natural Forces la organiza y dirige un equipo de cuatro curadores, entre ellos, dos miembros del DAM: Thomas Brent Smith, curador de Arte Estadounidense Wéstern y director del Petrie Institute of Western American Art, y Jennifer Henneman, curadora titular de Arte Estadounidense Wéstern; así como Diana Greenwold, curadora titular de Arte Estadounidense del Portland Museum of Art, y Maggie Adler, curadora del Amon Carter Museum of American Art. Hará su debut en el DAM antes de viajar al Portland Museum of Art en Portland, Maine, y al Amon Carter Museum of American Art en Fort Worth, Texas.

Se venderá un catálogo de la exposición de 225 páginas, publicado en colaboración con Yale Publishing, en las tiendas del DAM y en línea. Entre los expertos nacionales destacados que contribuyeron con la publicación se encuentran Smith y Henneman, junto con Adam Gopnik, escritor de The New Yorker, Maggie Adler, Diana Greenwold y Claire Barry, directora de conservación del Kimbell Art Museum.
