Description

Winslow Homer was American painter, illustrator and etcher. He was born in Boston, where he later worked as a lithographer and illustrator. His artistic education consisted chiefly of his apprenticeship to the Boston commercial lithographer John H. Bufford, and a few lessons in painting from Frédéric Rondel after that. Following his apprenticeship, Homer worked as a free-lance illustrator for such magazines as Harper's Weekly. Although Homer excelled above all as a watercolorist, his oils and watercolours alike are characterized by directness, realism, objectivity, and splendid colour. His powerful and dramatic interpretations of the sea in watercolour have never been surpassed and hold a unique place in American art. They are in leading museums throughout the United States. Homer was one of the two most admired American late 19th-century artists and is considered to be the greatest pictorial poet of outdoor life in the Unated States and its greatest watercolorist.show more
