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.

Happy Birthday Pavel Tchelitchev!! Russian painter, born in 1898, this artist was a Surrealist. After leaving Russia in 1934, he first lived in Berlin, then Paris and finally the US, becoming a US citizen in 1952. His first show of drawings was in the just opened Museum of Modern Art in 1930. Hide and Seek is said to be his most significant painting, completed in 1942.
