Winslow Homer, American Artist: His World and His Work

By Albert Ten Eyck Gardner | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHY
There are only a few books devoted to Winslow Homer. The most important ones are:
1. William Howe Downes -- The Life and Works of Winslow Homer. 1911.

Although this book has the distinction of being the first general work on Homer, and the author had the benefit of advice from Homer's family, the book is an old-fashioned work, a plodding compilation of facts and quotations, yet it remains an important source of information about the artist.

2. Kenyon Cox -- Winslow Homer. 1914.

Cox was a painter and his essay discusses Homer's work from the point of view of a rather conventional-minded fellow artist.

3. Forbes Watson -- Winslow Homer. 1942.

This is essentially a picture book with a brief introductory text based on Downes.

4. Lloyd Goodrich -- Winslow Homer. 1944.

A detailed biographical study -- the standard work on the artist's life. The book is of especial interest for its quotations from Homer's letters. It contains a large selection of black-and-white illustrations and an exhaustive bibliography. Unfortunately this book is now out of print.

5. Lloyd Goodrich -- Winslow Homer. Great American Artists Series. 1959.

A picture book with an introductory essay revised and expanded from a text originally written for the Metropolitan Miniature Series. Bibliography.

Naturally the work of Winslow Homer is discussed in all the books dealing with the history of American painting. Among the principal works of this sort are:
1. Samuel Isham -- History of American Painting. 1905.
2. Suzanne LaFollette -- Art in America. 1929.
3. Oliver Larkin -- Art and Life in America. 1949.
4. Virgil Barker -- American Painting. 1950.
5. James Flexner -- Pocket History of American Painting. 1950.
6. Edgar Richardson -- Painting in America. 1956.
