Flower Garden and Bungalow, Bermuda. Framed in sliver and ready to hang.

Winslow Homer captured the essence of a sunny and tropical landscape. In the forefront, a row of full bushes with orange, red and yellow flowers bursts with vibrant color. The bottom right side casts a shadow and was painted in tonalities of dark brown earth. On the right side of the composition, Homer played with the juxtaposition of a variety of green tonalities, representing different layers of vegetation, including palm and banana trees. There is an area of light blue-green pigment with green specks almost centered on the canvas, representing a field of grass that leads to a body of water.
Behind all of the vegetation and next to the calm river, a bright yellow house with a white rooftop and chimney pops from the landscape. In front of the vibrant construction, a child wearing red clothing runs after a couple of chickens. These figures were painted simply, but they perfectly represent the action. The background shows a gradient blue pigment depicting the water, and forest areas on the horizon are in dark green. The sky is cloudy and painted in light blue and gray, as if a storm were brewing, but the vibrant sun is still shining.
