Working Women, Fish Wives

Fish Wives 


 I am married to an academic whose research studies  have taken us to many countries around the world.It was not until I went to the USA that I first learned of the American artist Winslow Homer.Some of his most interesting and lovely paintings are of the Cullercoats fishing community on the east coast of Northumberland where he lived for two years.I lived near that stunning coast for many years and was astonished that in England this artist is almost unknown.

This is just one example of Homer's wonderful water colours.
