"Almost from the time they were made, Winslow Homer's watercolors have bee n thought to rank among the greatest achievements in American art. Although the major portion of his career was devoted to oil painting, his output in watercolor was prolific -- at least 685 sheets are known.

In this first major survey of Homer's watercolor career, Helen A. Cooper traces the formation and direction of of Homer's ideas, techniques and feelings through each distinct watercolour series" - from the dj. .
