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.

John Robertson Reid

Happy Birthday John Robertson Reid!! Born in 1851, this painter from England came from a family of artists, with his two sisters painters also. Reid was influenced by the French Realists as well as rural Naturalists and painted landscapes, largely on location. In fact his depictions of cricket matches drew the attention of cricketing historians. Reid later went on to become the president of The Society of British Artists. The painting below is titled Country Cricket.
