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.

Hans Hoffman

Happy Birthday Hans Hoffmann!! German born (1880) American painter, Hans Hoffmann is considered the chief personality behind Abstract Expressionism. He stressed the "push/pull" between space and form relationships. His paintings were about spontaneous gestures, quality of shape, textures and line. He was responsible for opening many American artists to the ideas of Abstract Expressionism.
