Homer Dodge Martin

Martin, Homer Dodge, 1836–97, American landscape painter, b. Albany, N.Y. His earlier works are in the style of the Hudson River school, but after his stay in France (1881–86) his work showed the influence of the Barbizon school, notably Corot; his style, however, retained its individuality. Martin's landscapes are melancholy, poetical interpretations of nature, subtle in coloring and in the treatment of light and atmosphere. Among his best-known works are Harp of the Winds (1895), Sand Dunes at Lake Ontario, White Mountains (all: Metropolitan Mus.), and Sea at Villerville (Kansas City Art Inst.). His last years were spent in St. Paul, Minn., where, nearly blind, he painted Adirondack Scenery from memory.
