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.

Lewis Carroll

Happy Birthday Lewis Carroll! Most people know of Lewis Carroll through his writing of Alice in Wonderland, however Carroll was also a photographer. Born in England in 1832 as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, he assumed the pseudonym: Lewis Carroll, after his first literary work, a poem, Solitude, in 1856. He experimented with photography in 1856, even considered making it his profession. Below is a picture of Alice Lidelle whom most believe to be, in part, the inspiration for the “Alice” in Carroll’s Wonderland.
