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.

Alfred Stevens

Happy Birthday Alfred Stevens!! The Belgian painter was born in 1823. He was from a family of artists; his brothers were painters, as well as his son. He began as a realist and historical painter. He was a contemporary and friend of Whistler. Stevens was influenced by Japanese culture and prints. He eventually painted genre scenes, usually of women in Parisian interiors. The painting below includes a Japanese doll, part of a collection Stevens is said to possess.
