The Look-Out - "All's Well" was one of three pictures Winslow Homer sent for exhibition to the Society of American Artists in 1897; despite his great fame and popularity, he had never chosen to exhibit there before, and it marked the first time he had exhibited in New York for nine years, so naturally there was much interest in, and comment about, them. The Look-Out - "All's Well" received the most praise. The Art Interchange said: "In this work he rises to heights of unquestioned greatnessâ€¦The picture is one of the few paintings of which I carried away a recollection that will resist the tide of time, and should I ever in day-dreams recall the Society exhibition of this year, The Look-Out - "All's Well" will surely present itself first. All the rest will sink into oblivion."
The painting is now in the permanent collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
