Winslow Homer
February 24, 1836 - September 29, 1910
Mount Auburn - Cambridge, MA


Winslow Homer was an artist in the mid to late 1800s.  Working primarily in oil and watercolour, he is best known for his land and seascapes, including Mending the Nets, Eight Bells, Banks Fisherman, Gulf Stream, and Searchlight.



Mount Auburn's free maps will direct you to the famous graves it houses, including Charles Bulfinch, Thomas Bulfinch, Buckminster Fuller, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Bernard Malamud and Mary Baker Eddy, in addition to some other historical figures you might find interesting (but that we missed).




Factoid: Homer was working on the painting Shoot the Rapids when he passed away.
