Winslow Homer at Morris


In contrast to the sculpture below (or CLICK) here is an example of magnificent art made out of wood. Low Tide is a wood engraving by Winslow Homer, first published in Every Saturday magazine on 6 August 1870. It's one of 28 superb engravings in On Vacation with Winslow Homer: Wood Engravings of an American Master, which opened yesterday at the Morris Museum, Morristown, New Jersey, USA, and runs until 7 October. Oh lucky Yanks. The exhibition is free, but you pay to enter the museum: $10 for adults or $7 for silver surfers. The Morris is a Blue Star Museum, offering free admission from Memorial Day to Labor Day 2012 for active duty military personnel and their families (CLICK). Why don't we do something similar for our armed forces? CLICK for Winslow Homer's Snap the Whip (1873).
