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.

Reuben Nakian

Happy Birthday Reuben Nakian!! Born in America in 1897, Nakian was a sculptor. He studied in New Your, and was friends with Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning, and Marcel Duchamp. He was also a teacher at Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art and Pratt Institute in New York. Nakian’s sculpture usually had to do with Greek and Roman mythology. The sculpture below is titled Leda and the Swan.
