Winslow Homer said regarding his art "The Sun will not rise or set without my notice and thanks." and "The life that I have chosen gives me my full hours of enjoyment." He also said, "You will see, in the future I will live by my watercolors." Once looking at paintings in an art gallery he said "I am going to paint - Something like that, only a damned sight better. If a man wants to be an artist, he should never look at pictures." Winslow Homer was an American landscape painter and printmaker, most famous for his marine subjects. Largely self-taught, he is considered one of the most well known artists to come out of the Civil War, and a preeminent figure in American art. His watercolors are so powerful that it is difficult to believe that Homer was himself "a small, reserved gentleman, quiet and unostentatious." His view of nature was severe and, even in the scenes of tropical waters, brilliant in color, indicative of his belief that man himself is nothing in comparison to the vastness of the ocean. Homer's lofty point of view found fewer admirers than had his earlier, more easily fathomed works but he was not without recognition even before his death, in 1910, and is today ranked as one of the finest of the world's watercolorists.
