July 6 – September 12, 1962

West Building Ground Floor

THIS EXHIBITION IS NO LONGER ON VIEW AT THE NATIONAL GALLERY.

Overview: 18 watercolors were lent in memory of Charles R. Henschel, president of M. Knoedler and Co., New York. As Winslow Homer's friend and dealer, Henschel received all of the artist's paintings as they were sent to New York for sale, thus providing him the opportunity to acquire superior works for his own collection. After the death of Mrs. Henschel in 1975, the watercolors came to the Gallery in her bequest.
