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.

Francois Pompon

Happy Birthday Francois Pompon!! The French sculptor was born in 1855. His worked is largely stylized animal forms. Pompon is considered a forerunner of modern sculpture, influencing Brancusi among others. The Polar Bear pictured below is on display at the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, France.
