Description: A fabulous and important compilation, begun in the mid-20th century by Lloyd Goodrich and finally brought to fruition.

Volume I (388 pages, 10 color and 277 black-and-white plates) begins the record in 1846 and continues to 1866, just after the end of the Civil War. The factual descriptions and histories of approximately 294 paintings and drawings are identified in separate entries; a black and white illustration of almost every work accompanies its entry. A selection of ten paintings are also reproduced in color in a separate section. "Summary Biography" introduces much new information on Homer's life.

Volume II (504 pages, 60 color and 310 black-and-white plates) resumes the record in 1867 and continues to 1876, the Centennial Celebration of the United States. The factual descriptions and histories of approximately 317 paintings and drawings are identified in separate entries; a black and white illustration of almost every work accompanies its entry. A selection of 60 paintings are also reproduced in color in a separate section. A continuation of the "Summary Biography" introduces much new information on Homer's life.

Volume III (480 pages, 76 color and 391 black-and-white plates) takes up the record at 1877 and continues to Homer's departure for England in March 1881. The factual descriptions and histories of approximately 400 paintings and drawings are identified in separate entries; a black and white illustration of each work accompanies its entry. A selection of seventy-six paintings are also reproduced in color in a separate section chosen to suggest what Homer's contemporaries saw of his work in the major exhibition.
