This volume examines the illustrations of American artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910). Homer's paintings and illustrations have both received much attention, but the author focuses his attention on Winslow's book illustrations alone. Although the author does not deny that Winslow's illustrations are uneven in quality, he points out many fine qualities of the best ones and argues that Homer's approach to painting was greatly influenced by his work as an illustrator. Chapters on Homer's illustrations for juvenile fiction, fiction, poetry, history, etc. illustrate this point. This work further discusses Homer's art in relation to the publishers' demands, reading fashions among the book-buying public, and the technology of printing.

Winslow Homer (1836-1910) is one of the core figures of 19th-century American art. While most well-known for his oil paintings of Civil War scenes and the windswept Atlantic coastline, Homer's oeuvre encompasses a variety of themes, ranging from childhood games through the life-and-death struggles of man and nature. The Clark Art Institute holds one of the greatest collections of Homer's work across all media, including wood engravings, etchings, watercolors, drawings, and paintings from nearly all phases of his career. The collection was assembled predominately by Robert Sterling Clark (1877-1956), who purchased his first Winslow Homer painting in 1915, followed by Two Guides in 1916 and maintained a passion for the artist throughout the rest of his collecting career, acquiring the small oil Playing a Fish in 1955. This book examines Robert Sterling Clark as a collector of Homer and the Clark's extensive holdings of the artist. Over thirty entries discuss the role of individual works in Homer's oeuvre and their larger significance to the art world. An illustrated checklist provides information on titles, dates, and media for the entire collection.

Winslow Homer in London

A New York Artist Abroad

Though a Bostonian by birth and upbringing, Winslow Homer lived and maintained his studio in New York City for twentyfive years, establishing himself as a leading figure in New York's art world. In 1881, determined to broaden his status as a painter, Homer journeyed to Great Britain. During his trip, major changes appeared in nearly everything he did as a painter. They came so rapidly that there can be little doubt that the crucial turning point occurred during his first weeks in London. After his return to New York in November 1882 and during his later years in Maine, the sequence of major oil paintings that came from his brush owed much, in the most fundamental ways, to transformations that began in London. Tatham's Winslow Homer in London: A New York Artist Abroad is the first book to examine in detail this preeminent American painter's crucial weeks in London during his year and a half in Great Britain. Tatham presents new information concerning Homer's time in the city, the centuries-old American associations of his London neighborhood, and his visits to London art institutions; he also considers in detail the artist's iconic painting The Houses of Parliament. Concluding chapters consider New York's reception of Homer's post-London paintings from the fishing village of Cullercoats and show how London and this village together formed the foundation for the major paintings of the artist's later career. Tatham's acute examination is enhanced with several illustrations of Homer's most celebrated paintings.

The Visual Culture of the News

Powerful and often controversial, news pictures promise to make the world at once immediate and knowable. Yet while many great writers and thinkers have evaluated photographs of atrocity and crisis, few have sought to set these images in a broader context by defining the rich and diverse history of news pictures in their many forms. For the first time, this volume defines what counts as a news picture, how pictures are selected and distributed, where they are seen and how we critique and value them. Presenting the best new thinking on this fascinating topic, this book considers the news picture over time, from the dawn of the illustrated press in the nineteenth century, through photojournalism's heyday and the rise of broadcast news and newsreels in the twentieth century and into today's digital platforms. It examines the many kinds of images: sport, fashion, society, celebrity, war, catastrophe and exoticism; and many mediums, including photography, painting, wood engraving, film and video. Packed with the best research and full colour-illustrations throughout, this book will appeal to students and readers interested in how news and history are key sources of our rich visual culture.

In this collection of essays, eight contemporary scholars examine the rich diversity in the subject, style, and geography of printmaking from 1913-1947, a singular period of artistic creation. Also three distinguished printmakers, who were active during the 1930s and 1940s, share their recollections of those decades, offering rare, first hand accounts of the political, social, and cultural elements that influenced the artists and their work. Tatham has chosen two watershed events, the Armory Show of 1913 and the important Brooklyn Museum exhibition of 1947, as the temporal bookends for this collection. Recognizing this era as wholly distinct from what had gone before and what was to come after it in graphic arts, the volume's contributors illuminate the period's spirited and vital debate about style, content, and the role of prints in society. Offering fresh assessments and newly understood historical contexts, the essays bring well-deserved attention to artists whose work has often been neglected, while it reexamines the works of well-known artists. This volume represents an important contribution to the study of printmaking by illustrating the way in which historical and contemporary graphic arts occupy a vital and central presence in the culture of our times.
