"Picnicking in the Woods," the 56th image in our "100 Days of Homer" daily series, shows Winslow Homer at his most detailed. This delightful engraving features several vignettes of woodland excitement, from children (and adults!) climbing trees (Detail 1 and Detail 3), to the elaborate spread (Detail 2), to a man striking down a snake while his date looks on (Detail 3).
