Winslow Homer
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Winslow Homer Winslow Homer February 24 September 29 ) was an American landscape painter and printmaker , most famous for his marine subjects. He is considered one of the foremost painters in 19th century America, and a preeminent figure in American art. Largely self-taught, Homer began his career working as a commercial illustrator , and subsequently took up oil painting , producing major works in the studio characterized by the weight and density he exploited from the medium, and watercolor , with which he created a fluid and prolific oeuvre primarily chronicling his working vacations.
edit Early life
Born in Boston, Massachusetts , Homer was the second of three sons for Charles Savage Homer and Henrietta Benson Homer, herself a gifted amateur watercolorist and Homer's first teacher. He apprenticed to a Boston commercial lithographer at the age of 19. By his freelance illustration career was underway and he contributed to magazines such as Ballou's Pictorial and Harper's Weekly . His early works, mostly commercial engravings, are characterized by clean outlines, simplified forms, dramatic contrast of light and dark, and lively figure groupings — qualities that remained important throughout his career.

Her catalogue is a landmark in Homer studies. It puts Homer in his true relationship to illustration, to other American art and to the European and English examples he followed, from Ruskin to Millet ; its vivacity of argument matches that of the paintings. Cooper has brought together some two hundred watercolors-almost a third of Homer's known output. It is a wholly delectable show, and it makes clear why watercolor, in its special freshness and immediacy, gave Homer access to moments of vision he did not have in the weightier, slower diction of oils. "You will see, in the future I will live by my watercolors," Homer once remarked, and he was almost right. He came to the medium late: he was thirty-seven and a mature artist. A distinct air of the Salon, of the desire for a "major" utterance that leads to an overworked surface, clings to some of the early watercolors-in particular, the paintings of

Winslow Homer

Mark Harden's Artchive: Winslow Homer

Winslow Homer was one of the finest and most influential American painters of the 19th century. Unlike his near-contemporaries James McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent, Homer executed the majority of his works in the United States and largely eschewed such revolutionary European artistic movements as impressionism in favor of a highly individual style rooted in traditional American realism.
An apprenticeship (1855-57) to a lithographer and an early career (1857-75) as a magazine illustrator constituted virtually all Homer's artistic education. His first significant oil paintings date from a Harper's Weekly assignment as a pictorial reporter of the Civil War. During the war Homer made several trips to the Virginia front, where he painted his first important oil, Prisoners from the Front (1866, Metropolitan Museum, New York City), a work notable for its cool objectivity and vigorous realism. In 1873 he began working in watercolor, a medium that became as important to him as oil. His subject matter of the 1870s was primarily rural or idyllic—scenes of farm life; children at play; and resort scenes peopled with fashionable women; one of the best known of the latter is

Winslow Homer was born in Boston , Massachusetts, on 24th February, 1836. When he was nineteen he was apprenticed as to the lithographic firm of John Bufford. In 1859 he moved to New York where he worked as a freelance illustrator.
On the outbreak of the American Civil War Homer was sent by Harper's Weekly , to draw pictures of the fighting. He observed the battle of Bull Run before accompanying the Army of the Potomac during its Peninsula Campaign. He also drew pictures of the siege of Petersburg
During the war Homer developed a reputation for realism and this was reinforced with paintings such as, In Front of Yorktown Playing Old Soldier A Rainy Day in Camp and A Skirmish in the Wilderness . His best known picture during this period, was the highly acclaimed, Prisoners from the Front
Although Homer owned a studio in New York he travelled widely, including in the Deep South, where he painted

Past Exhibition
Winslow Homer Illustrations 1857-1888

27 April through 9 June 2002 Winslow Homer's name is a household word in American art, beloved painter of sea, people, 19th-century genre, and American life. Understanding his involvement with illustration early in his career is a particular perspective upon the artist's contribution to a medium that not only is aesthetic in its inspiration and application but is journalistic in its initial intention. Homer was an observer of current events for such magazines and journals as Harper's Weekly and Ballou's Pictorial Drawing Room Companion . Though well known in the study of his life and work, the consideration of these images separated from their original context places then in the general arena with his paintings, which were created solely for aesthetic purposes. The exhibition intends to explore this aspect of Homer's oeuvre and allow an assessment of the opportunity the illustrated image was given for informational as well as artistic presentation.
Homer's exposure to the world of print media began with his apprenticeship in Bufford's lithography shop in Boston, where he was confronted with the role of the artist in the new application of the inclusion of pictures with printed stories. Prior to this time, articles were basically composed of verbiage, however, the 1850's dailies, weeklies, and other publications began to use pictorial descriptions that corresponded to the written word. With printing processes turning artists' drawings into wood engravings that cleverly replicated the drawn line, the possibilities were endless for artists to flourish in this medium. Thus was born the illustrator/journalist - at least for a limited time, since the process ceased with the advent of the photographic image that would engender its own revolution in the late 1870's.

Winslow Homer (1836-1910) is one of America's best known artists in watercolors. Taught to paint by his artist mother, Homer was apprenticed in 1855 to the Boston lithographer John Bufford, and by 1857 was freelancing as an illustrator to New York periodicals such as Harper's Weekly. He moved to New York in 1859 and took evening classes at the National Academy of Design (until 1861), then worked as a war correspondent (illustrator) with the Union Army, producing illustrations and paintings on Civil War themes throughout the 1860's and 1870's. Elected to the National Academy in 1864, he sojourned in Paris for most of 1867, absorbing works by the Barbizon school of landscape painters, and exhibiting two oils at the Universal Exposition in Paris. He consolidated his reputation as an oil painter to mixed reviews (some complained of his dull colors and lack of finish). Homer began painting in watercolors at age 37, during a summer trip to Gloucester (Massachusetts) in 1873. He added steadily to this work during summer trips in New England in the 1870's, culminating in a critically successful but not very profitable showing of his watercolors at the 1879 exhibition of the American Society of Painters in Water Colors
Homer took up watercolors in 1873 (at age 37), apparently as a way to get past his growing dissatisfaction with the commercial return from his oil paintings and the "treadmill existence" of his illustration work. He may also have been inspired by the popular success of a huge exhibition of nearly 600 European and American watercolors held by the ASPWC at the National Academy in 1873, which confirmed the significance of the

Winslow Homer (WINZ lo HOME er) was born in Boston in 1836. His mother was an artist and encouraged young Winslow in learning to draw. At age 19. he was illustrating sheet music covers and then when he was 21, he started working as an illustrator for a new magazine, Harper's Weekly
When the Civil War began, he went to the war front and began to paint war scenes. Then he went to Paris and studied for a few months.
He spent some time on the coast of England and also in the state of Maine. Many of his paintings such as Sailing the Catboat reflect the knowledge he gained of the sea and life on the coast.
Homer would do studies in pencil before he painted a picture. Sometimes he worked with oil paints and sometimes with watercolor. His watercolor pictures provided a very good income for him.
He enjoyed painting pictures of children. In his painting Snap the Whip , he shows what life was like in 1872. In this painting, the children are taking a break from their classes in the "little red schoolhouse". The green of the hills and grass make up the largest portion of the painting. Notice how the red color of the schoolhouse stands out, and how your eye is drawn to the white shirts on three of the boys. None of the boys are wearing shoes.
Homer liked to be by himself and he never married. For the last 27 years of his life he lived in a remote part of Maine away from people.

(February 24, 1836 - September 29, 1910) was an American painter. "The sun will not rise or set without my notice, and thanks," Winslow Homer, 1895 Perhaps it was this notice of and gratitude for the beauty of the cycles of nature that helped make Winslow Homer one of America's most treasured artists. The United States has produced its own breed of painters true to the vision and character of the nation. In the nineteenth century, one of its greatest was Winslow Homer. Classified as an American naturalist painter, Winslow was a self-taught artist who became most famous for his views of the American landscape and most notably his seascapes off of the Maine coastline where he lived during the latter part of his life. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Homer started an apprenticeship to the Boston commercial lithographer at the age of 19. By 1857 he had started an independent career, employed as a free-lance illustrator for such magazines as
