March 14: Man vs. Sea—Winslow Homer Depicts the American Hero
Philip Eliasoph, PhD, Professor of Art History, Fairfield University, Connecticut
In a richly visual journey, we will witness how Winslow Homer depicted the triumphs, pleasures and tragedies of recreational yachtsmen and bluewater fishermen in an emerging America. Homer was an eyewitness illustrator, watercolorist and oil painter. From fishing schooners on the treacherous Georges Bank to day-sailing in the emerald waters of the Caribbean, Homer created compelling stories with rugged honesty. His unflinching accuracy for sailors and ships in danger, dazzles our senses. Professor Eliasoph will describe how Homer’s majestic nautical scenes crystalize the 19th century American values and virtues of courage, endurance and individualism. Dr. Eliasoph has published many books and catalogs on American paintings; he blogs on Arts & Visual Culture for The New York Times.
