About this title

Synopsis:

Describes the background of each work, and recounts Homer's experiences covering the war

From Library Journal:

Winslow Homer, an "artist-correspondent" during the Civil War, is well known for his drawings of everyday life in camp and on the battlefield, but his oil paintings on this subject have not received much attention. The riveting essays in this exhibition catalog, which also serves as a monograph, cover Homer's technique, the historical background and symbolism of the paintings, and period criticism. Over 20 paintings are given thorough catalog entries and represented by rich color plates. This handsome art book accomplishes what few do: it satisfies a variety of audiences, from amateur to scholar, American art historian to military buff. Highly recommended. Kathleen Eagen Johnson, Historic Hudson Valley, Tarrytown, N.Y.
