A Wall, Nassau, 1898 by Winslow Homer (1836-1910, United States) | Museum Quality Copies Winslow Homer | WahooArt.com
One of Homer's most effective watercolors, "A Wall",Nassau dates from his second visit to Nassau. Homer varies the density and saturation of his strong clear colors from the opaque treatment of the foliage to the transparent of the sky and the wall.The opulent effect of the red tropical flowers superimposed on the blue sky reveals his acute sensibility for color. The wall rendered with transparent washes of gray and the white of the paper, dominates the position of his unusually luminous watercolor.
