Homer, Winslow - The Trapper

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of The Trapper by Winslow Homer. This scene is from the Adirondack Mountain region in which Winslow painted intermittently for over 4 decades beginning in 1870 which was his first trip to this region up until 1902 when he painted his last water color from this scenic wilderness area. The Trapper, an oil on canvas which measures 19 by 29 inches in size, was painted in 1870, being his first painting from the Adirondacks. This original work of art is now at the Colby College Museum of Art. Winslow makes the water the most important part of this work, not like most artists of the time, a man who we assume is a trapper from the title is standing on a log looking to his right, as if he has just heard something jump into the water and he is trying to see what it was. Maybe he is contemplating where to set his trap to catch the animal. To the left is his canoe of which he is holding the oar. The body of water for this setting is Mink Pond with a hint of the Beaver Mountain in the background, which the artist has subdued to draw more attention to the body of water and the trapper. It is not known for a 100% certainty that Winslow in fact named this painting himself or if someone else added the name later.
