Winslow Homer was born in 1836. He is one of the greatest American painters of the 19th century. He grew up in the Cambridge area, in Boston, MA. Early in his career, in the Spring of 1861, he began painting oil paintings. In the same year, he worked for Harper's Weekly in Virginia as front, editor and head of design.
After the devastating effects of the business war, Winslow Homer worked to create a new style. He was living in New York during this period. He made a living by drawing illustrations for magazines.
Most of his painting subjects were inspired by small rural areas rather than his New York City home. Scenes in coastal Massachusetts, New Jersey, the White Mountains, and similar small rural towns inspired him greatly. In 1866 Paris had the opportunity to work in the countryside and see many of the works painted in the area.
Although there were no similarities in the work of Winslow Homer and other French painters, he shared technical issues with painters and artists in the region.
Winslow Homer, Paintings, Studies, Watercolor Paintings
In much of Homer's work during this period, Winslow took a simpler approach. Some of the subjects he described used simple depictions of young children playing in the park or of parents with their children in an open setting. Although he worked mostly in oil painting and succeeded in mastering this art, he also started working with watercolor paintings to expand on the works for which he would be known. By 1875, his great success with this watercolor forced him to distance himself from his freelance work.
During this period in the 1870s, Winlow Homer also returned to Virginia, where he lived during the war and worked with the magazine company. He returned to feel what had happened to society and people, to fight and to find out what had happened to many of the former slaves who were free in the post-war period. Many of the works he depicted in the late 1870s also resembled some of the somatic atmosphere and some qualities found in some of his earlier pieces when he was living in Virginia.
As her lifestyle changed, she desired to lead a lonely life, and concentrated more on her art work. A trip to England in 1881 was one of his last trips abroad. He portrayed the tiring lifestyles he followed while living in the seaside town, the hard work of the inhabitants in his works. In these works, he painted women painting them, working hard, cleaning up the fish they had caught, or getting the nets back into the waterways. The work he depicted, the type of art he created, and his life in general had all changed as he experienced this vastly different culture and lifestyle on his way back to New York.
From the summer of 1883 until his death, Winslow Homer lived in a small town a few miles south of Portland. He spent most of his days in his new home, apart from a few trips in the USA in his final years. His later works were the most impressive watercolor paintings he had created during his career.
By 1890 much of his work was more dynamic. These contemporary pieces are his best-known works.
Homer died in 1910, but his work lived on, even with new artists, taking the stage in later years. Many of his recent works are the best known. and many of his contemporary and modern pieces are depicted in a number of museums in Boston and New York.
