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.

Theodore Chasseriau

Happy Birthday especially to my husband Craig…and also Theodore Chasseriau!! Born today in 1819, this French painter of the Romantic period was a student of Ingres and also inspired by Delacroix. He borrowed subject matter from both artists, including Shakespearean figures, Biblical scenes, historical information from North Africa, portraits, etc. In addition to paintings, Chasseriau also drew with lead pencil, as Ingres did. The Angel (below) was painted in 1840.

I will also include a picture of one of my husband's sculptures in honor of his birthday...Off a Beach in Hawaii
