Winslow Homer: American Passage- Autographed Copyby Macmillan $ 50.00
By William R. Cross
The definitive life of the painter who forged American identity visually, in art and illustration, with an impact comparable to that of Walt Whitman and Mark Twain in poetry and prose—yet whose own story has remained largely untold.
“Vivid storytelling melds with exuberant analysis in this sweeping look at a canonical American artist’s vibrant life . . . No stone in Homer’s life is left unturned nor brushstroke of deliberately placed light left unexplored under Cross’s meticulous eye . . . Art connoisseurs will want to make room on their shelves for this definitive guide to a great American artist." — Publishers Weekly
"Cross has done an admirable job of bringing to life this most American of painters. Finally, Winslow Homer's brilliant work and fascinating life are united in one volume." — Ken Burns, filmmaker
