On The Fence

And now perhaps a few more paintings of innocent children climbing fences, and I will forget the Schjerfbeck images of old age. This may be all the sentimentality I can handle in one day...

Actually, Winslow Homer had his own way of coping with reality. He said, “I thought for a change I would give up drinking, and it was a great mistake, and, although I reduced the size of my nose and improved my beauty, my stomach suffered.”
