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.

Robert Indiana

Happy Birthday Robert Indiana!! The American painter was born in 1928, and named Robert Clark. He took his surname from his home state, Indiana. He graduated from Arsenal Technical High School and approached his art through his commercial art background. He eventually made sculptures he terms “sculptural poems”. Many of these works originate from his iconic LOVE piece pictured below. Indiana has also worked as a theatrical set and costume designer and currently lives in Maine.
