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.

John Taylor Arms

Happy Birthday John Taylor Arms!! The American printmaker was born in 1887. He wrote Handbook of Print Making and Print Makers in 1939. His work is primarily etchings of medieval architectural structures, revealing extreme expertise in attention to fine detail. The etching below titled In Memoriam and is from the International Business Machines Collection. Isn’t it hard to believe it is an etching…and not a photograph?
