Have you ever experienced a life-saving situation?

Who is your hero?

How do you feel about images of disaster and rescue? About Homer’s work?

This was a terrific exhibition. Perfect size for someone whose back gets stiff. Maybe also the most beautifully presented exhibition I've seen at PMA. "The Life Line" is every bit the masterwork the exhibition claims it to be, and the theme is very well developed. The implication near the end however that late in life Homer may have thought differently of rescue is disturbing.

I thought all of the colors that the artists used for the sea were very realistic and very pretty.

Beautiful appetizer of an exibition. Left me hungy for more original Homers, however. I guess I'll have to go to Boston.

Great to see so many men of all ages at the show, as noted by a guard as well. Focus on one painting, artistic process, and the cultural history so interesting, even to this frequent museum-goer from the NY area. Well installed and lovely work.

Amazing to see the oils in person. Disappointed that there were only seven watercolors however.

The pictures of the animals were so detailed but it still caught your eye.

Very realistic and enjoyable to look at. Beautiful colors used for the sea. I could picture it in my head.

Enjoyed the exhibit very much. However, I would have deleted the non sea rescues of damsels in distress (Walter Scott) and would have tried to include Watson and the Shark and The Raft of the Medusa.

Thank goodness you are here! Long live the PMA and its mission to share art with a public eager to learn. Winslow Homer has long been a personal favorite, and this exhibit has been a most enjoyable experience. Thank you! Ah, if only GULF STREAM had been available... Keep up your fine and essential work!

A beautiful show...extraordinary research involved; the labels give a tremendous amount of information.The work is beautiful; and I loved the decorative urns! The entrance was impressive, needing only a pile of seaweed to complete the effect! Great work Kathy and all!
