Winslow Homer: The Four Leaf Clover

The Four-Leaf Clover: Winslow Homer

The Four Leaf Clover is Realist painting by American artist Winslow Homer that depicts a young girl holding up a clover, a symbol of good fortune. She is in a traditional rural setting rich in the growth of vegetation. This 1873 work can be read as espousing a nostalgia for the innocence of childhood, as well as for a fast-disappearing America.

Winslow Homer’s The Four Leaf Clover is in the Detroit Institute of Arts.
