Biography  TV-PG

WINSLOW HOMER: SOCIETY AND SOLITUDE profiles the life and work of one of the greatest American artists of his time (1836-1910). Two one-hour programs chronicle Winslow Homer's evolution from wood-engraver to Harper’s Weekly illustrator to an innovative watercolorist best known for his evocative oil paintings. Noted artists and scholars describe a man who lived in the midst of a lively and cosmopolitan New York City art scene, but gradually withdrew from public life, earning him the reputation as the great recluse of American art. The documentary features more than 180 of the artist's paintings, watercolors, etchings and illustrations and extensive on-location footage of places immortalized in some of Homer's most famous works.
