Summary
  • "When Winslow Homer sailed to England in March of 1881, he was already well established as a leading member of his generation of American artists. Critics often referred to him as the "most American of American artists," combining praise with the implication that his work was provincial compared to that of his more European-trained American contemporaries. However, upon his return, after a year and a half spent in the seaside village of Cullercoats, Homer's work garnered rave reviews and gained a new appreciation among art dealers. In this book, Tatham's detailed account of Homer's time in Cullercoats offers a perceptive reappraisal of both the village's influence on his work and the paintings themselves. In his Cullercoats paintings, Homer took as his main subject the lives and labors of the village's women and their strong sense of community. In many ways, these paintings stand among Homer's most original and perceptive depictions of women, but they also display his masterly uses of watercolor. The Cullercoats paintings show Homer in a new light, and Tatham's revelatory account provides the long-overdue attention they deserve."--
  • "This study aims to consider Winslow Homer's Cullercoats watercolors as a distinct and distinctive body of work, rather than merely a turning point in his career"--
