All Items (Homer, Winslow) (Paintings)
Collection Item
One of the first internationally renowned American artists for his own unique style, Winslow Homer (1836-1910) was most famous for his seascapes, frequently stormy North Atlantic scenes, though "Shadows on the Dunes" (observe the artists own shadow at center) is in a sunnier mode. Starting his career as an illustrator during the Civil War, Homer later focused on showing people in conflict with nature. He also helped to popularize watercolor as a professional medium for finished paintings and to complete pieces painting "en plein air" (outdoors in a single sitting).
