Winslow Homer and The American Pictorial Press in America

11/8/2013 - 1/5/2014

Fort Smith, AR  72901

Opening reception: November 7, 5-7 p.m. This exhibition highlights the emerging celebrity of Winslow Homer (1836-1910) through engraved images produced for the American pictorial press. Homer's career began in 1857 and ended in 1875, at which point he dedicated himself solely to painting. During his tenure with such publications as Ballou's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion, Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper and Harper's Weekly, Homer created more than 200 illustrations. From leisure scenes of the Adirondacks to battlefields of he Civil War, Homer's images have always demonstrated an engaging style and dynamic composition. Also included in the exhibition are works by Thomas Nast, Alfred Waud, Theodore Davis, and Charles Parsons.
