Influential 19th century artist Winslow Homer (1836 – 1910) broke from Impressionism to produce realistic, robust images of American life. An illustrator, oil painter and watercolorist, Homer created battlefront illustrations for “Harper’s Weekly” before moving on to tranquil farm and rural scenes. Homer is famous for his energetic, epic seascapes, as well as portrayals of man pitted against the rugged wilderness. His fresh, spontaneous style and exquisite expression of atmosphere had a revolutionary impact on watercolor art.
