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.

Robert Delaunay

Happy Birthday Robert Delaunay!! Okay, I am home again and will attempt to get this blog up to date and back on track with today's artist, Robert Delaunay. Born on April 12, in Paris, France in 1885, Delaunay worked in Orphism, (Abstract Expressionism combined with Cubism). He is known for his brilliant color, greatly influenced by Paul Klee. The painting below is titled Tall Portuguese Woman, look closely, you can see the figure of his woman on the right).
