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.

Albrecht Durer

Happy Birthday Albrecht Durer!! German born, 1471, Renaissance artist Durer, was a watercolorist and printmaker. He had an incredible power to see minute detail and convey that realistically in his paintings and engravings. Durer also had the accute ability to convey ideas through use of symbols. An example of his attention to detail is pictured below in one of his watercolor nature studies, titled The Great Piece of Turf.
