Description

Born in Boston into a long line of New Englanders, Winslow Homer (1836–1910) became a freelance illustrator at age twenty-one, drawing for Harper’s Weekly and other pictorial news magazines. During the Civil War he served as a Harper’s war correspondent, then in 1866 he traveled to Europe, spending nearly a year painting in Paris. On his return to America he began working in watercolor and quickly mastered the medium.
