Breezing Up (A Fair Wind), 1876: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
Item#DA3574
By artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910), in a Private Collection
A catboat called Gloucester chops through a Massachusetts harbor in a fair wind in this iconic painting reflecting the optimism of America's future. First exhibited at the National Academy of Design and in Philadelphia's Centennial Exposition, it was described as a true and hearty work. Homer was a preeminent figure in American art, considered one of the foremost painters of the 19th century. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our imported hardwood frame features bold, beaded detail on the borders and is highlighted in antiqued gold tones to enhance this spectacular image.

   Winslow Homer (1836-1910)




American painter whose works, particularly those on marine subjects, are among the most powerful and expressive of late 19th-century American art. His mastery of sketching and watercolor lends to his oil paintings the invigorating spontaneity of direct observation from nature. His subjects, often deceptively simple on the surface, dealt in their most serious moments with the theme of man's efforts to establish his humanness in the face of an indifferent universe.
