Winslow Homer, 1836-1910. Born in Boston, he began work as a lithographer at age nineteen but soon switched to illustration and painting. His magazine engravings appeared in Harper's Weekly, Ballou's Pictorial, Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper and others. In 1957 he moved to New York and began working of Harper’s Weekly. He turned down a staff position at Harper’s preferring to be a freelance artist. From 1861-1862, he sent drawings of the Civil War to Harper’s. He sketched battle scenes, camp life and commanders. Attached to the Army of The Potomac, his were the first drawings of General George B. McClellan. Homer filled his sketch books with studies of uniforms, weapons, individual soldiers and daily life. His work recorded the experiences of the soldiers, their bonding on the front lines as well as the terror. (1117, 1115, 1130, 1141)* This body of material became the basis of some of the most important paintings of the Civil War. After the war, he did engravings and paintings in the cities, on the farm, at the seaside and in the mountains. Most of his famous oil and watercolor paintings were produced in the second half of his life after he moved to Maine. As an American landscape painter and printmaker, he is best known for his marine subjects. He is considered one of the foremost painters of 19th century.
