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.

Alfred Stieglitz

Happy New Year...and
Happy Birthday Alfred Stieglitz! This American photographer was born in 1864. Stieglitz, believing photography could become a major art form, published the quarterly Camera Work. Long time partner of Georgia O’Keefe, Alfred Stieglitz devoted his life to recording exact characteristics of situations through the camera. An excellent example of this innovative modernist photography is The Steerage.
