The sea began to assume a role in Winslow Homer’s paintings as early as 1873, when he spent the summer in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Let your eye wander over "Breezing Up (A Fair Wind)," painted during the country's centennial year. Here, a catboat bearing the name "Gloucester" turns toward home in late afternoon. The day’s catch of fish is carefully stowed in its cockpit. A brisk breeze raises whitecaps, fills the mainsail, and heels the boat over until its port rail is awash. Counteracting the wind, a fisherman and three boys throw their weight to the starboard side. On the horizon, a gull circles over a two-masted schooner. What else do you notice? Winslow Homer, "Breezing Up (A Fair Wind)," 1873-1876, oil on canvas, National Gallery of Art, Washington, Gift of the W. L. and May T. Mellon Foundation
