Last night, rain had just cleared on Prouts - reminded me of how many different, beautiful looks #mainesummer has; not hard to understand how this place inspired Homer and so many others #winslowhomer#proutsneck#maine
In honor of #VeteransDay—Winslow Homer’s iconic composition “The Veteran in a New Field.” Painted through the summer and fall of 1865, not long after the nation came to grips with Robert E. Lee's surrender and mourned President Lincoln's assassination—Homer's canvas shows an emblematic farmer who is a Union veteran, as is signified by his discarded jacket and canteen at the lower right.
