Snap the Whip, 1872: Canvas Replica Painting: Small
By artist Winslow Homer (1836-1910), in a Private Collection
With nostalgia for the end of rural childhoods as a post-Civil War America moved to cities, this celebration of freedom grasps the idyllic, carefree lives of barefoot boys as they move quickly toward the responsibilities of manhood. Homer's boys held hands in a game that may have symbolized a reunited nation. The artist's work as a draftsman, printmaker and illustrator prepared him beautifully for the compositional equilibrium and balanced beauty of this perennial American favorite. 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 replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with a beaded inner border and an antiqued ebony finish.

   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.
