"Winslow always tried to make his watercolors and oil painting look as realistic and natural as possible. Many people think he is one of the greatest American artists ever."
This biography introduces Homer in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Homer, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
