Winslow Homer: The Nature of Observation

The Watercolors of Winslow Homer
by Miles Unger, et al
Book Description: Winslow Homer's watercolors rank among the greatest pictorial legacies of this country. Winslow Homer's first medium was oil painting, although to make ends meet, he did commercial illustration and chronicled the New York City social scene. Eventually, Homer withdrew from city life altogether to settle at Prout's Neck on the rocky New England coast. There he turned to watercolor, in part for financial reasons (watercolors were easier to sell), but the newly popular medium also enabled him to capture his impressions of scenery and landscapes encountered during his many travels with an immediacy and directness impossible in the more time-consuming oils. Of his more than 700 watercolors, over 140 are reproduced here, dating from the 1870s to the turn of the century and ranging from pastoral to narrative, dramatic to serene. Miles Unger's text provides insight into the artist's technical mastery of the medium and discusses the importance of Homer's watercolors within the larger body of his work. 140 color illustrations.

Winslow Homer: Illustrating America
by Marilyn S. Kushner, et al

Winslow Homer: Artist and Angler
by Patricia Junker, Sarah Burns
This volume and the exhibition it accompanies look closely at Winslow Homer's avid pursuit of fly-fishing and the inspiration that the sport provided for his art. It was fishing that led the eminent painter to three of the locales with which we now associate his name: the Adirondack in northern New York State; Florida; and Quebec. Each of these distinctive regions elicited unique and strong reactions from the painter that took form in works that are brilliant studies of light, atmosphere and the spirit of place. At his favourite fishing spots, Homer worked in the traveller's medium of watercolour, stretching it ever more boldly and unconventionally in order to convey the intensity of his experience of nature, his response to light and atmosphere peculiar to a given region, a specific season and a particular time of day; and his feeling for the physical and psychological demands of his favourite sport. Homer's fly-fishing paintings are an immensely varied and little understood aspect of his art. They serve as a counterpoint to all his other work, especially in the 1880s and beyond when fly-fishing represented a regular and sustained activity for the artist. Homer's fishing watercolours suggested to him new subject matter, inspiring or at least intensifying, for instance, his interest in commercial fishing and in the lives of the men and women who live by the sea. And his fishing expeditions offered recreation, rejuvenation, solace and camaraderie, which spurred his imagination.
