Winslow Homer and the Sea
Winslow Homer (1836-1910) devoted much of his life to a study of the ocean and the people whose lives were intertwined with it. This book is the first to focus on the full range of Homer’s coastal subjects, with thirty-six reproductions of his most powerful works. Carl Little’s essay discusses Homer’s development as a painter; quotations from writers such as Homer scholar Philip C. Beam and poet Gerard Manley Hopkins add a further dimension to the thorough and enlightening text.About the AUTHOR
