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.

Richard Norman Shaw

Happy Birthday Richard Norman Shaw!!  Happy Birthday Richard Norman Shaw!! English architect was born in 1831 and known for his country houses and commercial buildings.  He was a member of the Royal Academy and is credited for breaking away from the Victorian style and bringing back a more "modern" version of the Queen Anne style. Shaw firmly believed that architecture was an Art. As his work developed his buildings became less conspicuous and were described as charming and homey. His designs were open in design, with a quiet, country feel.
