Winslow Homer, whose work is featured on the cover of this catalog, was the greatest American painter of the 19th century. His subjects are touchingly familiar: the Civil War soldier, the country school, the emancipated slave. This volume includes a broad selection of his paintings and watercolors, each profoundly symbolic of the main currents of American life from the Civil War to th e turn of the century. 103 illustrations, including 52 plates in full color.
