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.

Odilon Redon

Happy Birthday Odilon Redon!! Born today in 1840 in France, Redon was a painter and a printmaker. Known as a symbolist, Redon’s work was imaginative fantasies using subjects from nature: flowers, plants, rocks as well as rather mysterious figures. The magical image below is called Ophelia Among the Flowers and is a pastel from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Ophelia seems in deep contemplation before the flowers.
