Homer Dodge Martin (1836 - 1897)

Homer Dodge Martin is an American landscape painter of the Hudson River School. He was also enamored of the Barbizon school, which emphasized a palate of darker, more somber colors.

He was a native of Albany, New York and studied under William Hart. He travelled throughout Europe in 1876 where he was first exposed to the Barbizon school of painting which had a significant impact on the artist's style and brushwork. He would later return to France, from 1882 to 1886 he made his residence there. He spent much of his time living in France in and around Normandy.

He was a member of the National Academy of Design in New York, being elected an associate in 1868 and raised to the level of a full Academician in 1874.

His work is considered as among the best of the Hudson River School of painters, who specialized in the landscapes of the American northeast, painting them in a serene style that put much emphasis on the realism and detail of the paintings. His works can be found in the collections of many prestigious museums.

Homer Dodge Martin lived out the last years of his life in Minnesota. He died in St. Paul.
