WINSLOW HOMER: SOCIETY AND SOLITUDE profiles the life and work of one of the greatest American artists of his time (1836-1910). Two one-hour programs chronicle Winslow Homer's evolution from wood-engraver to Harper’s Weekly illustrator to an innovative watercolorist best known for his evocative oil paintings. Noted artists and scholars describe a man who lived in the midst of a lively and cosmopolitan New York City art scene, but gradually withdrew from public life, earning him the reputation as the great recluse of American art.
