Winslow Homer in London: A New York Artist Abroad


Winslow Homer was nothing if not a creature a habit, once stating, “The sun will not rise or set without my notice.” But he also reinvented himself throughout his career, including while in Great Britain from 1881-82. Within this British career, much has been written about Homer’s residency in the Cullercoats, a British fishing village. Yet Homer’s time in London has been largely overlooked. In Winslow Homer in London, author David Tathem brings this period to light, uncovering what the artist’s day-to-day experience looked like, and where his London episode fits within the arc of his career.
