"Organised by geographic location, this book reveals Homer's keen ability to capture the quintessence of nature, from the raw coast of Maine to the balmy shores of the Caribbean, through his remarkable capacity to adapt materials and techniques to the locale. The works assembled simultaneously capture the unique landscape of their geographic settings, issues of pictorial representation in general, and the universality of man's relationship to the sea." "Through a series of essays by distinguished European and American scholars, Winslow Homer: Poet of the Sea offers a fresh exploration of the American master and his life-long proccupation with the sea."--BOOK JACKET.
