This Art Book with Foreword and annotated reproductions by Maria Tsaneva contains 152 selected drawings and paintings of Winslow Homer.
Winslow Homer was an American landscape painter, draftsman, etcher and printmaker, best known for his marine themes. He is regarded as one of the leading American painters in 19th-century and a greatest figure in American art.
Homer's oils and watercolors in a similar way are distinguished by straightforward manner, realism, objectivity, and impressive color. His powerful and dramatic interpretations of the sea have never been outshined and grasp a unique place in American visual art. His paintings and watercolors are in most important museums throughout the United States and abroad.
A careful observer of visual reality, Homer was at the same time alive to the purely physical properties of color, of line and of the forms they create. His work is distinguished by bold, fluid brush-work, strong composition, and chiefly by a lack of sentimentality.
