By William R. Cross 

In Winslow Homer: American Passage, William R. Cross reveals the man behind the art. It is the surprising story of a life led on the front lines of history.

Homer, born into the Panic of 1837 and raised in the years before the Civil War, came of age in a nation in crisis. Through his art, he captured the landscape of a rapidly changing country with an artist’s probing insight. His tale is one of America in all its complexity and contradiction. Whether using pencil, watercolor, or oil, Homer addressed the hopes and fears of his fellow Americans and invited his viewers into stories embedded with universal timeless questions of purpose and meaning.
