Winslow Homer was born in the Panic of 1837 and raised in the years before the Civil War. He created  visual tales replete with narrative for and about people of all races and ages. Homer addressed the hopes and fears of his fellow Americans and invited his viewers into stories embedded with universal, timeless questions of purpose and meaning.

In Winslow Homer: American Passage, William R. Cross reveals the man behind the art. It is the surprising story of a life led on the front lines of history. In that life, this Homer made images of American culture, endowed with a force of moral urgency through which they speak to all people today.
