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.

Horace Vernet

Happy Birthday Horace Vernet!! French born in 1789 this painter was from a family of painters. He is best known for his battle and horse scenes. His primary work was the gigantic gallery of Battles at Versailles that was painted for Louis Philippe. One of these is pictured here, The Battle at the Bridge of Arcole. Doesn’t the dynamic composition as well as the expressive features on the figures capture your attention?
