Realism   •   Winslow Homer @ Wikipedia

The American Winslow Homer (1836 - 1910) was a painter and draftsman. At an early age, his talent as a draftsman became apparent, which greatly benefited his parents. After his apprenticeship with a lithographer his money earned Homer mainly with drawings for magazines such as Harper's Weekly. Later he was commissioned to paint the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln in Washington. In 1861, Homer began to study painting and took classes with Frederic Rondel, along with some of the courses he attended at the National Academy School. Also, he traveled in the years 1861-65 as a draftsman for Fletcher Harper on the fronts of the American Civil War. Later he also traveled to Europe and exhibited there.

In his paintings, Homer deals in various ways with the American Civil War. Especially the fifth New York Infantry Regiment with its bright red uniforms he captured in several pictures, as in "Briarwood Pipe" (1864). He exhibits them in New York and Paris, where they quickly find buyers. From 1883 Homer moved with his family to Prouts Neck and shifted his subjects in natural and seascapes such as "Artist Sketching in the White Mountains" (1868), " The Fog Warning" (1885) or "Gulf Stream" (1889). © Meisterdrucke
