Landscape with Snow (1888)

Landscape with Snow (1888)
Painted in February of 1888, Van Gogh painted the dreary furrowed fields of winter. A lone figure with his dog trudge toward home. Located in the Guggenheim, I was moved to view this painting this past weekend.

Albert Bierstadt

Happy Birthday to Albert Bierstadt(and my brother John Walter Crittenden as well)! Born in 1830, German-American Albert Bierstadt was a painter of the American West. The beautiful light and attention to detail of his paintings is a characteristic reminiscent of today’s Thomas Kinkade. Oregon Trail depicts a familiar subject of the covered wagon, in a rugged forest setting.
