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.

G. P. Cauvet

Happy Birthday G. P. Cauvet!! French sculptor, architect and ornament designer was born in 1732. He designed and sculpted pieces for the Royal Family of France. It has been difficult locating information about this artist, but apparently he helped organize and exhibited at the Exposition of 1774. The hand painted architectural engraving for an ornamental panel, below, is attributed to Cauvet.
