This thoroughly researched, immensely readable
study on Winslow Homer, one of America's most
significant and prolific painters, presents a full
account of his life and work and offers a fresh
and provocative reassessment of his place
in the history of late nineteenth-century art.
Homer's work is popular and accessible, and
Griffin's text, with its solid documentation,
original research and fresh interpretations,
has become an essential survey of Homer
and his creative output.
