About this title


Winslow Homer captured the power and beauty of nature in a manner uniquely his own. One of the giants of American art, he began his career as an illustrator recording the Civil War for 'Harper's Weekly'. He soon turned to painting, and his constant search for new subject matter and his basically restless nature led him all over New England, where he delighted in everything from the seacoasts of Gloucester, Massachusetts and Prout's Neck, Maine, to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He recorded the pleasures of childhood in small towns along the Hudson River and was enchanted by the tropical landscapes of Florida, Nassau, and Bermuda. He also made two long journeys abroad. This sumptuous volume, with its lavish illustrations, also contains the first systematic catalogue of Homer's vast oeuvre. Gordon Hendricks presents many heretofore unknown facts about the artist's life and work. Mr. Hendricks's major studies of Thomas Eakins, Eadweard Muybridge, and Albert Bierstadt have helped to give him an extraordinary grasp of knowledge about his new subject. Drawing on correspondence between Homer and his family, between artist and his various dealers, and on contemporary critical reviews of Homer's work are included in this volume, as well as many documentary photographs of the artist and his family and the various sites he painted. The first complete checklist of works by Homer in public collections in the United States, a chronology, a bibliography, and an index also serve to make this beautiful book an outstanding contribution to the understanding of American art. 440 illustrations, including 68 in full color
