The Watercolors of Winslow Homer
Miles Unger
0393020479
October 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Though certainly more famous for his oil paintings, Winslow Homer was one of the first major artists to take watercolor seriously and to herald its acceptance in the 20th century as an art form in its own right, undertaken by stars like O'Keeffe, Prendergast and Hopper. Nearly 700 of his watercolors survive; 150-some are reproduced in The Watercolors of Winslow Homer by Miles Unger, a contributing New York Times critic. It's clear why these paintings, which seem like top-drawer book or magazine illustrations, hover in relative obscurity: the thin quality of the paint doesn't enrich Homer's rural and sea-faring subjects as does the texture he wrought from oil and canvas. But serious fans of turn-of-the-century American art will be delighted with this high-quality collection and Unger's learned text. Copyright 2001...

Winslow Homer and the Critics: Forging a National Art in the 1870s
Magaret C. Conrads
0691070997
January 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
When Winslow Homer settled at Prout's Neck, Maine, in 1883 at age 47, he was already a famous American artist. Winslow Homer and the Critics: Forging a National Art in the 1870s takes into account the painter's earlier decades in New York, which featured a 15-year stint beginning in 1857 as an illustrator for Harper's Weekly. An explosion in art interest and art writing after the Civil War and a plethora of new influences from Europe converged in and around Homer's work, argues Margaret C. Conrads, a curator at Kansas City's Nelson-Atkins Museum. With 97 color plates, 58 b&w illus. and generous quotations from period literature, Conrads reconstructs a heady climate of artistic possibility and achievement.

From Publishers Weekly
Instead of Winslow Homer as unvarnished, naive democrat, an artist divorced from the intellectual life of his times, Cikovsky gives us a painter who was a modernist in his detachment, anxiety and impersonality. Plunging into New York City's seething cultural milieu in the 1860s, the Boston-born illustrator joined a loose artistic circle that included jounalist Eugene Benson, whose programmatic call for a modern, national, indigenous art struck a chord in Homer. But disillusionment set in with the corrupt Gilded Age of the 1870s, and Homer took refuge in art, plumbing nature's elemental power in his seascapes, and investigating the act of seeing in vibrant, spontaneous watercolors of the tropics or the Maine coast. His later paintings grasp death with almost mystical immediacy. Curator of American art at the...

From Publishers Weekly
Homer's reputation has been on the rise lately, with his quintessentially "American" watercolors and drawings the subjects of major retrospectives revealing the breadth of his achievement. This volume takes a narrower look, by focusing on the place of fish and fishing in Homer's life and work. Junker is curator of paintings and sculpture at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, and Burns is a professor of fine arts at Indiana University, Bloomington. This catalogue accompanies their co-curated exhibition of the same name, opening in December 2002 in San Francisco before moving on to Fort Worth. It covers everything from Homer's fishing camp in Prout's Neck, Maine, to the trout illustrations from which Homer copped some of his pictorial fish. Of its 184 illustrations, 123 are in color, with an emphasis on...


Winslow Homer Watercolors

From Library Journal
Winslow Homer was a successful illustrator in his 30s when the American Society of Painters in Watercolor held a landmark international show in New York City. It gave him the impetus to produce prolifically in this medium, and to take the text of his art from American farms and sea towns to the coast of England, from the Bahamas to Key West. Watercolor gave his oil paintings their sense of sunlight and freshness and a greater evocation of movement. Highlights of Homer's long career in watercolor are shown in 132 luminous color plates. The informed text was written by a curator of the Yale University Art Gallery. Published in conjunction with an exhibition now touring the United States, this first major survey of Homer's watercolors is recommended for art libraries and general collections. Hara L. Seltzer,...

Still Looking: Essays on American Art
John Updike
1400044189
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Bookmarks Magazine
Published primarily in the New York Review of Books, the collected essays in Still Looking are less art criticism than finely honed art appreciations. Reviewers note Updike’s inquisitive tone and earnest interest in his subject matter. The often honored (an American Book Award, an O. Henry Prize, a National Medal for the Humanities) and prolific author once aspired for a career in cartooning and studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford, England. The major complaint, if it can be registered as such, is that Updike is so effective at bringing these works to life that the book, though amply illustrated, provokes frustration that the exhibitions are no longer running.Copyright © 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc.
