The first comprehensive monographic catalog of the artist in more than 20 years, Winslow Homer considers Homer through the lens of his artistic output. Over the course of five decades, Homer created a truly extraordinary number of superb and compelling prints, drawings, watercolors, and paintings. Reticent almost to the point of secretiveness about the meanings of his creations, and protective of his privacy almost to the point of reclusiveness, Homer nevertheless did not stop showing himself to the public through his works. By gathering works of art from Homer’s entire career—including oils, watercolors, prints, and drawings—and providing a full account of his life, this catalog strives to reaffirm the primacy and centrality of the artist himself in all the questions posed about him and his art, and in all the answers offered.
