Art on Sunday: Special Saturday edition!

Winslow Homer
The Sick Chicken, 1874
Watercolor, gouache, and graphite on wove paper
Homer, TheSick Chicken
National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

I'm posting a work of art tonight because tomorrow is the first Sunday in Advent, so my Art on Sunday posts will be on hiatus until January 7, 2006.

I'd like to think that the sick chicken in this painting is the same one mentioned in this poem. But that's just me.
