A weathered barn, rocking chairs on a covered porch, cows in a pasture, and children playing in picturesque fields are all subjects frequently found in what would be considered “Americana” art. This is a category that McGaw Graphics has always featured and it is a subject that has stood the test of time. These warm scenes infuse the viewer with nostalgia for days gone by and offer an idealized portrait of American life. Today is the birthday of one of the most important American artists in the history of art, Winslow Homer.
Other artists who have contributed to this subject are Edward Hopper, Grant Wood, Andrew Wyeth and others. McGaw Graphics publishes the works of many contemporary masters of Americana art including Zhen Huan Lu, Jim Daly, and Peter Sculthorpe. See our Top Americana images.
