Overview

In addition to being acclaimed for his magnificent paintings and watercolors,Winslow Homer is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished and prolific illustrators of the nineteenth century. This volume illuminates his illustrations--an often overlooked but magnificent body of work by America's most popular nineteenth-century artist. Working in an era when photography was not yet widely used as a reproductive medium, Homer was employed between 1857 and 1875 as an artist whose images were made into wood engravings that appeared in such popular journals as Harper's Weekly, Appletons' Journal, and Every Saturday. Homer's first steps toward his transformation into the artist of haunting emotional and formal vision he later became are visible in these illustrations. Winslow Homer: Illustrating America reproduces 79 of Homer's best printed illustrations--scenes of children, of the Civil War, the coastal resorts, the Adirondacks, and others. Essay authors Gallati and Kushner discuss these works within their art historical and social contexts.
