Summary
"American painter Winslow Homer (1836-1910) created some of the most breathtaking and influential watercolors in the history of the medium. This handsome volume provides a comprehensive look at Homer's technical and artistic practice as a watercolorist, and at the experiences that shaped his remarkable development. Focusing on over one hundred watercolors - including twenty-five rarely seen examples from the Art Institute of Chicago's collection ... along with more than thirty related drawings and paintings, the book offers an enriched understanding of Homer's techniques as they evolved over his career."--Jacket
