Fine Art Friday

"The Water Fan"
Winslow Homer

Winslow Homer has been a favorite artist of mine for years. I love his water paintings especially, but also like many of his others.

The blues and blue-greens in this painting are calming. And I like the crispness of the horizon line, the boat edges, and the distinctness of the man's white shirt against the water. This are fixed when all else in the painting undulates. Nothing in the painting appears complicated, just clean and neat.

I'm not sure what the title "The Water Fan" means. Any ideas?
