Winslow Homer (1836–1910) has justly been called one of America’s greatest artists. Beginning with the Civil War and throughout his career he insightfully recorded the sweeping panorama of the nation’s life. The 30 works presented in this book of postcards include early masterpieces such as Home, Sweet Home (c. 1863), which marked Homer's auspicious debut as a painter, and Blackboard (1877), which sensitively portrays the changing role of women in postbellum America. Also represented are famous works such as Breezing Up (A Fair Wind) (1873–1876), a wonderful example of Homer's fascination with the sea and his startling ability to capture its most fleeting effects of light and atmosphere. In every instance Homer's art delights us with its sheer beauty and inspires us with its vision of American culture.
