The Herring Net

Winslow Homer concluded the dramatic painting entitled The Herring Net in 1885 and the artwork is presently located at the Art Institute of Chicago. The artist represented the relationship between nature and humankind, but in a different manner than earlier in his career. During the summer of 1881-82, Homer made a trip to Cullercoats, England, that would change his way of seeing life and producing art. The painter stayed at a fishing community and observed the harsh life of the people who lived and worked there and their struggle with mother nature. The fishermen had to face the dangerous seas while the wives would wait for their return and help cleaning the fish.

It is clear how Homer changes his interpretation of nature from sunny and hopeful landscapes to dark and challenging images of struggle. In The Herring Net, the artist portrays two men in a small boat fight against the rough waves of the Atlantic Ocean to haul in a net of herring. One figure is pulling in the net, while the other is hanging off the edge of the raft, as a balance. They both wear brown raincoats and dark, large hats that cover their face. One of the men seems smaller than the other, suggesting that they might be father and son.

Homer used a beautiful color palette that brings a warm atmosphere to this turbulent scene. The blue-green water has accents of yellow and pink, reflected from the dark sky. A schooner can barely be seen on the far horizon, as well as some other not identified figures. The herrings caught in the net are under a bright light, and the artist captured their shiny and slippery surface perfectly. A red float can be seen in the forefront, creating a complementary effect.

During this period, Homer had a great desire for solitude, giving his art a completely different atmosphere. His work always portrayed the contemporary life with considerable attention, but now it gained a whole new meaning. His view on the daily struggle of the fishermen’s life is comparable to humankind’s battle with the forces of nature – something that can sustain and nurture, or it can deprive. After 1890, Homer abandoned the narrative in his paintings and dedicated to portraying the beauty of nature itself, creating dynamic, dramatic, and breathtaking seascape paintings.

Finest Quality Stretching, Gallery Wrap or Framing
Purchasing without a frame (unstreched canvas)

When purchasing a painting on its own, it will arrive rolled inside a secure tube with an extra 1.5" of white canvas on all sides so you can easily frame it in any local frame shop.

Purchasing a frame

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.

Purchasing a Stretching Service

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.

Purchasing a Gallery Wrap

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
