Winslow Homer in the Adirondacks by David Tatham

Book Description

"Winslow Homer made his first visit to the Adirondacks in 1870 and his last in 1910, just two months before his death. His first and subsequent visits to the region coincided with the growing public concern that led to the creation of the Adirondack Forest Preserve in 1885 and the Adirondack State Park in 1892...David Tatham demonstrates very convincingly that Homer's 'Adirondack oils and watercolors constitute a highly original examination of the human race's relationship to the natural world at a time when long-established assumptions about humans, nature, and art itself were undergoing profound change.'...The visual focus is upon the artist's twenty-four Adirondack oils and watercolors that are superbly reproduced in full color...An impressive work that is fully worthy of its subject." - New York History; "[Tatham]...explores the influence of Darwinism and [Homer's] residence in England on his perception of nature. The author notes the success of the artist's watercolours on his return to the Adirondacks in 1889, explores his use of hunting imagery, and the repeated appearance of Beaver Mountain in his work until his death in 1910." - Artbibliographics

Winslow Homer and the Illustrated Book by David Tatham Winslow Homer and the Illustrated Book, Hardback (March 1992)

This study introduces a little-known aspect of the work of the artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910). In particular, it focuses on his work as an illustrator of books and literary magazines, where, for almost three decades, he pictorialised the works of Bryant, Longfellow, Tennyson and Whittier.
