PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Portland Museum of Art will be adding two paintings to its display this month.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1IIF7mF ) the museum acquired an oil painting by Winslow Homer and added an egg tempera painting by Andrew Wyeth.

The Homer painting is from 1872 and was acquired through an anonymous gift. The Wyeth painting is from 1958 and has been shown regularly since 1992. It was donated by billionaire David Rockefeller in memory of his son Richard, who lived in Falmouth until his death in 2014.

The museum will be closed from Jan. 4 until Jan. 22 for a series of maintenance projects.

It will display both paintings when it reopens Jan. 22.
