Coming Away With Winslow Homer

Homer captures the very spirit of rocky coastlines with their backdrops of dramatic blustery skies and shimmering sands. Homer’s pictures have a rugged authenticity about them, emphasizing the dynamic struggle between humanity and the natural world. His paintings illustrate a forthrightness and direct, comprehensive way of telling a story – an American story – the strength and nobility if the working man and working woman in their timeless heroic pose against “the horizons both beckoning and foreboding.”
