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.

Cecil Beaton

Happy Birthday Cecil Beaton! London born in 1904, Beaton became the most well known portrait and fashion photographer of the day (1920’s). He worked on the staff of Vanity Fair and Vogue, photographing celebrities in Hollywood as well. Beaton designed stage costumes also, the most renown being My Fair Lady and Gigi. Audrey Hepburn is in the photo below, being photographed by Cecil Beaton in a costume he designed for My Fair Lady.
