The painting was made by Winslow Homer (1836–1910). He was an American landscape painter and printmaker, best known for his marine subjects. He is considered one of the foremost painters in 19th-century America and a preeminent figure in American art.
Largely self-taught, Homer began his career working as a commercial illustrator.He subsequently took up oil painting and produced major studio works characterized by the weight and density he exploited from the medium. He also worked extensively in watercolor, creating a fluid and prolific oeuvre, primarily chronicling his working vacations.
The accompanying print shows 'Palm Tree, Nassau' painted in 1898. This watercolor, composed vertically to accentuate the towering height of the central palm, visualizes the approach of circular storm clouds. Wind whirls around the tree, whose branches bend to the right. Conversely, the red flag in the background—raised by the lighthouse keeper to signal a coming hurricane or squall—blows in the opposite direction. By picturing these contrary winds, Homer contemplates the types of complex meteorological effects he would later thematize in "The Gulf Stream".
