About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Homer, Winslow, Beam, Philip C.

From Library Journal:

Prout's Neck, Maine, was not only the artist's retreat during his most productive years but also a source of inspiration for his most powerful seascapes. This collection of essays, coinciding with a traveling exhibition that began this fall, evaluates the "strong sense of place" found in paintings done during the Maine years. Enhanced by more than 30 color plates, the text is scholarly yet unpretentious. Of particular interest are a piece on the Homer family written by the artist's grandniece and Philip Beam's checklist of works included in the exhibition--indeed, the book nicely complements Beam's more biographical Winslow Homer at Prout's Neck ( LJ 4/1/66). Libraries seeking a general view should consider the recent Winslow Homer , edited by Nicolai Cikovsky (National Gallery, 1989), but this fine, thematic volume is highly rec ommended.
