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.

Jean Louis Forain

Happy Birthday Jean Louis Forain!! French Impressionist was born in 1852 and at age eight his family moved to Paris. He started his career in art as a caricaturist for several Paris magazines. He became friends with Edgar Degas, who was a great influence on his work. In the later years of Forain’s life he was made a member of the Royal Academy of Art, in London. The oil painting included here is titled Can-Can Dancers.
