WINSLOW HOMER (1836 - 1910)

Winslow Homer,  born in Boston, was an American landscape painter who worked in oils, printmaking, and watercolor.  Beginning in 1884, Homer made many trips to tropical locations and watercolor became his preferred medium while traveling.  He painted many watercolors during the 1880's in the Bahamas and Bermuda.  Here are two of my favorite  Homer watercolors.
