Winslow Homer was born in 1836. It is one of the greatest American painters of the 19th century. He grew up in Cambridge, Boston, MA. Early in his career, in the spring of 1861, he started painting oil paintings. The same year he worked as a front, editor and design chief for Harper's Weekly in Virginia.
After the devastating effects of the war, Winslow Homer tried to create a new style. He lived in New York during this period. She provided her living with illustrations for the magazines.
Most of the paintings were inspired by small rural areas, not at home in New York City. The coastal scenery in Massachusetts, New Jersey, the White Mountains and similar small rural townships has been a highly inspiring source to him. In Paris in 1866, most of his work, working in the countryside and portrayed in the region, had the opportunity to see.
Although there were no similarities in the workings of Winslow Homer and other French painters, he shared the technique with artists and artists in the region.
Winslow adopts a simpler approach in the majority of Homer's work in this period. Some of the topics he described portrayed simple descriptions of his parents and children with small children playing in the park or in an open environment. Although he worked most in the field of oil painting and mastered the arts, he also began working with watercolor paintings to expand on the works he recognized. Until 1875, the great success he created with these water colors enabled him to move away from his free self-study.
During the 1870s, Winlow Homer returned to Virginia, where he lived during the war and worked with the magazine company. It returned to collecting and finding out what was to many of the old slaves who were free to fight, to feel what was to happen and to postwar times. Much of the work he portrayed in the late 1870s, while at the same time living in Virginia, looked like some somatic atmosphere and some qualities found in some of his earlier pieces.
As their lifestyle changed, they wanted to live a life of their own, and they concentrated more on artwork. A trip to England in 1881 was one of the last trips abroad. He depicted the tiresome lifestyles he followed while living in the coastal towns, the hard work of the residents in his works. In these studies she drew women to paint them, to work hard, to clean the fish they caught, or to return to the waterways of the nets. On his way back to New York, when he experienced this incredibly diverse culture and lifestyle, the art he was describing, the kind of art he created, and life in general changed.
From 1883 until his death, Winslow Homer lived in a small town a few miles south of Portland. In recent years he spent most of his days in his new home, except for a few trips in the US. His recent work was the most impressive watercolor paintings he created throughout his career.
When it came to 1890, most of his work was more dynamic. These contemporary pieces are the most famous works. Homer died in 1910, but his works survived to the stage in later years, even with new artists. Most of the recent studies are best known.
