John McMahon on the power of Winslow Homer's work. "It’s as if Homer, a big mustachioed man, whipped these canvases up in a frenzy of paint to match the storm, delivering that power to the viewer."
We have a Homer show in the UK at the moment at the National gallery in London which I’m really looking forward to seeing. So this lovely piece of writing was timely! https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/exhibitions/winslow-homer-force-of-nature
Wonderfully expressive! Wish there were images of the paintings to go with it.
How lovely to encounter this tribute to an artist too often overlooked. I’m particularly fond of “The Sleigh Ride,” at the Clark in Williamstown, Mass.
