About the Artwork

"The Flirt" (1874) by Winslow Homer. Original from The National Gallery of Art. This an oil-on-wood painting. 

"The Flirt" is a painting of people on board a boat sailing across the ocean. The water looks calm in the background of the painting; however, the boat looks like it is tipping towards the wave in the foreground of the painting. The people aboard put their efforts into making sure the boat does not tip. 

Winslow Homer was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1836. Homer's artistic education consisted of his apprenticeship to the Boston commercial lithographer John H. Bufford, and a few lessons in painting from Frederic Rondel after that. Following his apprenticeship, Homer worked as a free-lance illustrator for such magazines as Harper's weekly. He submitted his last drawing to Harper's Weekly in 1875, ending his career as an illustrator. He began traveling in the 1870s from New York to Virginia and Massachusetts. In 1881 he began a two year stay in England, living in Cullercoats, near Newcastle. Returning to America in 1883, he settled at Prout's Neck, Maine. In 1890 he painted the first of the series of seascapes at Prout's Neck. These are the most admired of his late paintings in oil.
