Winslow Homer, Dog on a Log, 1889, watercolor and graphite on wove paper, bequest of Candace C. Stimson, 1946.120

Truly masterpieces of painterly skill, watercolors are prized for their unique freshness and fluid execution. Created with quick, immediate gestures, the works portray a spontaneity that belies the practiced sureness required of the artist, who must apply countless transparent and opaque layers of pigment over absorbent, unforgiving paper to produce a composition filled with sparkling light and jewel-like color.

Exhibition of watercolors is limited, as the works are sensitive to light and susceptible to irreparable fading over time. For six weeks only this fall, the Addison offers visitors a rare opportunity to view a selection of its treasured watercolors by recognized masters of the medium—Arthur B. Davies, Winslow Homer, John LaFarge, Thomas Moran, Maurice Prendergast, and John Singer Sargent.
