Winslow Homer


HOMER Winslow, artist, born in Boston, Mass., 24 Feb., 1836. In 1854 he was placed by his father with a lithographer to learn the business, and remained two years, producing among other works a design that embraced the portraits of the entire senate of Massachusetts. He then engaged in drawing on the block for wood-engravers, and, his work attracting favorable comment, he was invited to remove to New York by a publishing house, for whom he made many drawings. In 1860-'1 he studied in the night-school of the Academy of de­sign, and had a month's instruction in landscape-painting. 

In 1863 he exhibited for the first time, at the Academy, two pictures on war subjects--"Home, Sweet Home," and "The Last Goose at Yuletown." These pictures made a strong impression on the public. In 1865 he exhibited "Prisoners at the Front." The characters in this scene are all portraits, and at the Paris salon of 1867 was one of the few American pictures that received favorable comment. He spent the year 1867 in Paris, studying without a master from life models, but received a great impulse from the paintings of John La Farge. He was elected an associate of the National academy in 1864, and an academician the following year. 

Mr. Homer's pictures have the merit of genuine motive and aim. He paints life as he sees it, and is rigidly faithful to his own per­ceptions. Since 1867 he has resided in New York. lice exhibited "Snap the Whip" and "The American Type" at the Philadelphia exposition of 1876, and "Snap the Whip" and the "Country School Room" at the Paris salon of the next year. Among his most noted pictures are the Negro studies "Eat­ing Watermelon" and the "Cotton-Pickers," and the "Song of the Lark," "The Four-Leaved Clover,"  '" Dad's Coming," "In the Fields," "The Tryst-tug-Place," and "Flowers for the Teacher." He has recently exhibited at the National academy "The Life-Line" (1884) and "Undertow" (1887). -- Edited Appleton's Cyclopedia American Biography Copyright© 2001 by VirtualologyTM
