EXCERPT:
This presentation covers the art of Winslow Homer, the top American artist of the 19th century. Homer was equally proficient in oil and watercolor painting. He single handedly set a very high bar for American watercolor painting for the 20th century.

Homer was self taught. He got his big break when Harper's Magazine sent him to the front of the American Civil War to illustrate it for the magazine. His first oil paintings also flowed from this experience.

Homer's career continued to enlarge from there. He painted the former slaves during the Reconstruction in the South. He also painted ordinary Americans in small Midwest towns and on the Atlantic Coast. The people were going to school, tending the farm, swimming in their "swim costumes", building model ships and every other "ordinary" pursuit imaginable. Homer painted it all.

Then in the 1880s he moved to Maine and became such a great Marine painter, in both watercolor and oil, that most people forgot he'd ever painted anything else. Not satisfied with painting just the ocean of Maine and the lakes of the Andirondacks, by the 1900s he was also doing Marine Paintings of Key West, Cuba, Bermuda, Nassau, and other tropical locations.

This product covers all facets of Homer's art, not just his Marine paintings. The student will study the long arc of Winslow Homer's remarkable career.
