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.

Giambattista Bodoni

Happy Birthday Giambattista Bodoni!! Italian, born in 1740, Bodoni was an engraver, printer and typographer, who apprenticed for a time in the Vatican’s publishing house. He developed a technical typeface with strong thick stems and hairline thin contrasts. His font included flat, horizontal serifs and was considered ultra modern in his day.
