Reflections on Andrew Wyeth (1917-2009)
Winslow Homer / Andrew Wyeth
Adirondack Lake, by Winslow Homer (American, 1836-1910). Watercolor over graphite pencil on paper, 14 x 20 in. (35.6 x 50.8 cm), Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
As noted in "Andrew Wyeth Picks 20 Great American Watercolorists" (Maria Woodie, Artist Daily weblog, July 12, 2017), Winslow Homer--whose watercolors Wyeth first saw in his studio in Maine--was an early source of inspiration for him. The largest collection of Wyeth's watercolors is that of the Greenville County Museum of Art in Greenville, South Carolina.
Superb images of 563 of Homer's paintings in various media, sorted by year completed, are on The Athenaeum website. See watercolors (scroll down). The section on oil paintings begins on page 4 (scroll down).
