Art Lecture on Winslow Homer

WinslowHomer Snap-the-Whip-IDr. Henry Rinne will give a lecture on the art of Winslow Homer at 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 19 at the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum.

Winslow Homer (February 24, 1836 – September 29, 1910) was an American landscape painter and printmaker and is considered one of the foremost painters in 19th-century America and a preeminent figure in American art. Best known for his marine subjects, Homer began his career working as a commercial illustrator. He subsequently took up oil painting and produced major studio works characterized by the weight and density he exploited from the medium. He also worked extensively in watercolor, creating a fluid and prolific oeuvre, primarily chronicling his working vacations. He is largely self-taught.WinslowHomer The-Fog-Warning
