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.

Hector Guimard

Happy Birthday Hector Guimard!! French architect born in 1867, Hector Guillard worked in the Art Nouveau style in France after studying the decorative arts in Paris. He created Art Nouveau objects, advancing to designing structures. His most well-known being the entrances to the Paris metro system. Eighty-six of the brass, iron and glass forms still exist today. I’ve seen the natural, organic forms scattered throughout Paris. They seem to rise from the depths writhing with beauty and beckoning one below.
