The Real Fisher Girl

An article published in Mainely Media last Friday reveals the woman who posed as a model for Winslow Homer as he completed The Fisher Girl in 1894. Pine Point woman: Model for a Master is the story of Ida Meserve Harding, a local resident of Pine Point where Homer lived and worked. Harding was just 16 years old when she began modeling for Homer. She modeled for The Fisher Girl, as well as another Homer painting, A Light on the Sea.
