Homer Watson

Homer Watson (1855-1936) stands as one of the most influential landscape artists of Canada. Having almost no formal training, Watson blossomed through his exposure to the Hudson River school painting tradition while he studied art in New York for two years. It was there that he met Hudson River painter George Innes which shaped his early years. By the mid-1870s, he also befriended Lucius O’Brien who assisted his career greatly. The last 40 years of Watson’s life featured a deconstructive leap into impressionism.
