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.

Francis Bacon

Happy Birthday Francis Bacon!! This English painter was born today in 1909, and was a figure painter. Before devoting his time to painting he was an interior decorator and furniture designer. He generally painted in series and is best known for his grotesque heads, Heads in a Room. With Halloween close at hand, it seems like the picture I have chosen for today is quite appropriate.
