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.

Edme Bouchardon

Happy Birthday Edme Bouchardon!! The French sculptor was born in 1698, and worked under G. Coustou I until going to Rome in 1723. Although Bouchardon worked in Versailles, he is best known for his work in Paris. One of which I have included here: Cupid, which resides at the Louvre. The proper title is Cupid Fashioning a Bow Out of the Club of Hercules. I was fortunate enough to see this at the Louvre in 2006. His Cupid is sleek and slender; as always, Bouchardon’s figures are chaste and proper, his taste classical.
