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.

Laurent Delvaux

Happy Birthday Laurent Delvaux! Flemish sculptor, born in 1696, Delvaux worked in England and Rome, finally returning to Flanders in 1733. He sculpted in marble and wood, primarily for churches and the court. His work is quite ornate and referred to as “cold” combining French neoclassicism and Italian baroque styles. Sampson is located in the Louvre.
