Episode #102

KQED World: Tue, Jul 23, 2013 -- 12:00 PM

After 1880, Winslow Homer's painting evolved in a different way. During the final decades of his life he created a series of masterpieces that led to his reputation as the most profound visual poet of the sea, and of elemental themes of nature in general.
