Sunlight on the Coast by Winslow Homer, 1890. Toledo Museum of Art. [Public domain] via Wikimedia Commons.
I featured another painting by Winslow Homer a few weeks ago, but today is his birthday, so it would be just wrong to not acknowledge it. This work is very different in tone from “The Milkmaid”, although the actual style of painting is quite similar. Homer is well-known for his seascapes, many of them painted in Maine. In honor of his birthday, the Met Store Blog posted a nice piece about Homer and his art.
