Weatherbeaten: Winslow Homer and Maine
by Thomas Andrew Denenberg, (Portland Museum of Art/Yale University Press)
For 25 years in Maine, Winslow Homer wrestled fierce nature into his finest paintings. This gorgeous book marries reproductions of his work with photos of his carriage house (previously unseen by the public) and essays.

For most, Bellows equals boxing, but this Ashcan School artist stretched far beyond the ring into street life, war, seascapes, portraits, satire and politics. Exhibition on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (www.metmuseum.org) through February 18.
