Winslow Homer - The Turtle Pond (1898)

Winslow Homer does not stop to amaze me with each of his paintings that I come across. He has in his art a dimension that I could name, well, Homeric! I mean, unexpectedly powerful and modern sometimes, when you would have expected (as in other of his works) just a story told within the limits of tradition.
