Angling was not just a favorite pastime of American painter Winslow Homer (1836-1910), it was also the inspiration for much of his art. Traveling to storied fishing locales in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, the Laurentide regions of Quebec, and central Florida, Homer worked in the travelerís medium of watercolor, which perfectly suited his interpretations of the aquatic world.
Art Historian Patricia Junker is the author of Winslow Homer, Artist and Angler, which accompanied the special exhibition, Casting a Spell; Winslow Homer, Artist and Angler, organized by the Amon Carter Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
