In the first half of the early 1870s, Winslow Homer made a series of dinner-horn images. This painting, "The Dinner Horn (Blowing the Horn at Seaside)" is the first in that series.

The woman is described as "a farmer’s daughter and maid of all work, just from the kitchen . . . blowing the dinner horn" for the farm workers in the distant field. Breezy and fresh, "The Dinner Horn" captures a moment in time. Imagine you are standing in the space created by this work of art. Describe the look and feel of the sun.

Winslow Homer, "The Dinner Horn (Blowing the Horn at Seaside)," 1870, oil on canvas, National Gallery of Art, Washington, Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Mellon

To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.


The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,... )
