The Veteran in a New Field by Winslow Homer

Oil on canvas, 24 1/8 x 38 1/8 inches, 1865

I find this painting very striking and powerful. There is a detail shot of the artwork and an informative analysis of the painting on The Metropolitan Museum of Art website.

Today, I heard a great radio interview that my husband, Anthony, gave for our Capturing Realism exhibit. If you would like to hear the interview, you can listen to WVIA online on Sunday at 12 (EST). I'll be also adding a link to the podcast version when it's available.
