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.

Gustav Vigiland

Happy Birthday Gustav Vigiland!! Today, Vigiland was born in Norway in 1869. He took his name (Vigiland) from a small town where he lived for a time with his grandparents. He studied to be a wood carver and later determined to become a sculptor, studied with Bryunjulf Bergslien. In 1921, the home he lived in was demolished by the city, but they built a new one for him, including a studio space and grounds for his sculpture garden. He lived there until his death in 1943.

Still in Hawaii...I'll have to post a picture later!

Hello, I am home! The sculpture I decided to post for Gustav Vigiland is Going Round the Mulberry Bush, located in his sculpture garden in Oslo, Norway.
