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.

Rembrandt Peale

Happy Birthday Rembrandt Peale!! We looked at this artists’ brother’s work a few days ago. Rembrandt Peale was born in 1774 to portrait artist Charles Peale. Rembrandt followed his father’s footsteps and became a portrait painter as well. In the portrait of Thomas Jefferson, we see a precursor of Romanticism in the gentle pose, even tone quality and expressive brushstrokes.
