with Bill Cross

Biographer William (Bill) R. Cross tells the stories of Americans whose works are known, but whose lives are not. In 2019, he curated Homer at the Beach, A Marine Painter’s Journey, 1869-1880, a nationally acclaimed exhibition at the Cape Ann Museum that revealed Homer’s formation as a marine artist. In Winslow Homer: American Passage (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2022) Cross unveils his subject’s surprising role as the visual counterpart to American literary figures such as Walt Whitman and Mark Twain.
