Image of Winslow Homer's 1887 painting For to Be a Farmer's Boy.

Winslow Homer's (1836-1910) "For to Be a Farmer's Boy" (1887) (Gift of Mrs. George T. Langhorne in memory of Edward Carson Waller, AIC 1963.760). This image had long puzzled scholars due to the seemingly unfinished and flat sky in a highly finished work.
