Winslow Homer Commemorative Stamp Released


The ninth edition of the United States Postal Service’s American Treasures stamp series, released today, features Winslow Homer’s 1874 oil painting, Boys in a Pasture (which can be seen at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston). Homer (1836-1910), considered one of the greatest American painters of the 19th century, also served as an artist-correspondent during the Civil War for Harper’s Weekly magazine.

Said U.S. Postal Service Chief Information Officer/Executive Vice President Ross Philo, “Indeed, it’s been said that Winslow Homer did for the United States what the French Impressionists did for Europe. He showed the beauty of a place and the people who lived there. His body of work continues to shine as a legacy to our great and beautiful nation.”

Find the stamp on the USPS website.
