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.

Edwin Austin Abbey

Happy Birthday Edwin Austin Abbey!! The American painter and illustrator was born on April Fool’s Day in 1852. His training was at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Early in his career he had illustrations published in Harper’s Weekly. He moved to England in 1878 and was made an official member of the Royal Academy. He did eventually return to the US. His illustrations of Victorian and Shakespeare images are well known. Below is an illustration for Hamlet.
