About this title

Synopsis:

In this exciting new monograph, Professor Griffin provides fresh insight into the life and work of one of America's most-famous and best-loved artists. The author places Homer against a background of American nationalism fuelled by tensions between American self-identity and European sophistication. Finding in Homer's work the aspiration to create specifically American subjects and a specifically American character. It is testament to Homer's success that his influence is still echoed in every strand of America media almost 100 years after his death. Born in 1836, Homer began his career a magazine illustrator, soon becoming a regular contributor to Harper's Weekly, one of the America's most popular magazines. In the early 1860s, Homer was sent by his editor to the front lines of Civil War battles in Virginia. His woodcuts and lithographs of wartime encampments were widely distributed and served to make him highly popular with a large American audience.

About the Author:

Randall C. Griffin is Associate Professor and Chair of the Division of Art History, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas. Professor Griffin is an authority on Homer, with extensive research and teaching experience of the subject, and he is the author of the recently published, scholarly volume Homer, Eakins and Anschutz: the Search for American Identity in the Gilded Age (Penn. State Press), which has received very favourable reviews.
