Overview

Although he gained his fame as a painter, Winslow Homer also was responsible for a large corpus of black-and-white wood engravings that appeared in Harper's Weekly, Every Saturday, and other magazines. Tatham (emeritus, fine arts, Syracuse U.), who has already produced a volume examining Homer's book illustrations (Winslow Homer and the Illustrated Book, 1992), explores the engravings as works of art in-and-of themselves, rather than, as in earlier treatments, clues to Homer's painting or simple social historical documents.
