Poster with a painting from the 1885s depicting two fishermen on a rolling sea pulling up a net full of herring. 

Winslow Homer was an American artist who mainly painted landscapes. He is best known for his maritime motifs and is considered one of the foremost artists in 1900th century America.

In the early 1880s, Homer moved to a small coastal town in Maine where he would create a series of paintings not previously seen in American art. After visiting a small fishing village in England in 1882, his view of his own life and painting changed. The paintings he would create after his visit focused almost exclusively on man's struggle against the elements of nature. Homer was fascinated by the fishermen's daily work, fishing for herring, among other things.

Homer's painting of the two fishermen in the small rowing boat shows the cooperation required to successfully lift the heavy nets and bring the catch back to the larger ships visible in the background.
