Homer | Remington
Margaret C. Adler, Jennifer R. Henneman, Diana Jocelyn Greenwold, and Claire M. Barry with Peter G. M. Van de Moortel; With an introduction by Adam Gopnik, a prologue by Thomas Brent Smith, and a chronology by Janelle Montgomery
Winslow Homer (1836–1910) and Frederic Remington (1861–1909) represent a distinct artistic strain of the American mythos: both were celebrated in their day as homegrown, self-taught artists whose work offered a vision of American identity rooted in self-reliance, vigor, and a deep connection to the outdoors. This groundbreaking book is the first to consider the two artists together, revealing unexpected resonances between their artistic themes, careers, techniques, and lives. The publication highlights their formative years as war correspondents, their portrayals of adventure and masculinity, and their bold experimentation with different media.
