Course detail: OSH053 - Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, and Winslow Homer: Three Great American Masters from the 19th Century
We'll study the great oil paintings of Cassatt, Eakins and Homer along with their accomplishments in other areas of art and art media. We'll discuss Cassatt's 10-color intaglio prints from the 1890s, which many in the print world consider to be some of the finest of this type of color printing, as well as her involvement with the French Impressionists. We'll cover Eakins' work in photography and his revolutionary approach to teaching life drawing. Finally, we'll review Homer's work in watercolor as an illustrator covering the Civil War for Harper's magazine and his work in etching. Homer is "the" watercolorist by which all American watercolorists will forever be judged.
