About the Artist
This poster reproduction of Winslow Homer's Dad's Coming! (1873) from the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art depicts the family of a fisherman awaiting his return. The exuberance suggested by the title is tempered by the meditative air of the still, silhouetted figures. The mother faces away from the sea, while the young boy scans a horizon. Instead of depicting a celebratory narrative of homecoming, Homer captures the more ambiguous moment of watching and waiting.
