This book is the first to focus on the full range of Homer’s coastal subjects, which began with seashore vignettes drawn at the start of his career for the illustrated journals of the day, and ended with powerful Maine seascapes and luminous Caribbean watercolors. This book contains thirty-three color reproductions of Homer’s most powerful works, from romantic scenes of figures on the beach to his depictions of the fury of coastal storms. Carl Little’s essay discusses Homer’s self-taught development as a painter, from lithographer apprentice, to master of marine painting and his influence on many accomplished American artists.
