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.

Valentine Cameron Princep

Happy Birthday Valentine Cameron Princep!! I really had to search to find an artist for today! This British Pre-Raephelite painter was born in India, in 1838. His father was a member of the Council of India for many years. He later was brought up in a home run by his mother for artistic “types” such as Dickens, Tennyson, Browning, etc. in Britian. He became a professor of painting, concentrating on portraiture and genre paintings. The painting here is titled The Queen Was in Her Counting House.
