Homer, Winslow - The Sick Chicken Fine Art Poultry Print
A Museum Quality print of The Sick Chicken by Winslow Homer, the scene in this artwork shows a young woman standing in her front yard tending to a sick peepe. The mother hen and the other chicks are at her feet along with other chickens in the yard behind her. There is also a small coop for a chicken or two and some milk cans. Homer Winslow realized early on the potential for profit in watercolors because he could produce and sell them quickly and he also liked the way he could experiment more easily than with the traditional oil based paints. Homer priced The Sick Chicken, a delicate work that demonstrates his early technique of filling in outlined forms with washes of color, at the steep price of one hundred dollars. That has surely been a good investment over the years, as any Winslow painting is now worth many multiples of one hundred dollars.
