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.

Lucien Levy Dhurmer

First and foremost I want to remember my son Shane today, this day of his birth…miss you Buddy…and then, Happy Birthday Lucien Levy Dhurmer!! Born in 1853, Dhurmer was from Algiers. He was a symbolist who also worked in the Art Nouveau style, studying in Paris. He began his career in ceramics, first exhibiting a ceramic plaque at the Salon in 1882. He gradually became more interested in painting, creating contemplative figures with Impressionistic color. The painting below seemed a fitting image for this day in early autumn.
