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.

Kenneth Hayes Miller

Happy Birthday Kenneth Hayes Miller!! American born in 1876, Miller was considered an urban Realist. He studied art at the New York School of Art, later becoming a professor there. His paintings are plump. rosy faced Renaissance women in contemporary settings. He eventually moved near Union Square in New York, painting the common woman in the streets outside his studio. The woman in red fingers her brooch, wistfully awaiting her destiny in the painting By the Window, below.
