Of all of Winslow Homer's works that we saw at the Clark last week, Undertow is the one that keeps coming back to haunt me.

Could it be because of my fear of the ocean? I'm a strong swimmer, but feel that I'd been drowned out of a past life.

Perhaps I was just picking up on some other references. Hal mentioned that the composition reminded him of the arrangement of sculptures in a Greek pediment.

For some reason, I got to thinking of this alternately beautiful and horrifying piece at the Gardner.


Hmm, interesting. After clicking around on the Phoenix aht crit page I find this.
They're saying that there's no connection. Am not so sure about that.
