The Veteran in a New Field, 1865

The Veteran in a New Field, 1865

Winslow Homer

In October of 1861, he was sent to the front in Virginia as an artist-correspondent for the new illustrated journal, Harper's Weekly. Homer's earliest Civil War paintings, dating from about 1863, are anecdotal, like his prints. As the war drew to a close, however, such paintings as "The Veteran in a New Field" reflect a more profound understanding of the war's impact and meaning. Painting depicts an emblematic farmer who is a Union veteran. Most soldiers had been farmers before the Civil War. This man, who has returned to his field, holds an old-fashioned scythe that evokes the Grim Reaper, recalls the war's harvest of death, and expresses grief upon Lincoln's murder. The redemptive feature is the bountiful wheat - a Northern crop - which could connote the Union's victory. With its dual references to death and life, Homer's iconic composition offers a powerful meditation on America's sacrifices and its potential for recovery.

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
